Pontcysyllte Aquaduct
Llangollen Canal
Trevor
Wrecsam

We've walked over it before, but on that occasion, it was quite breezy
On the return, the leaves on the water were moving at practically the same speed we were, it was most disconcerting

I know it's a Grade 1 listing, but didn't realise it was a UNESCO World Heritage Site too!

125 foot above the valley bottom, at the highest point!

Certainly not today
This photograph appeared as a ‘memory’ on my FaceBook page
(browsing that, & here, whilst drinking tea)

Taken on Thursday 3rd May 2018, at High Ackworth
To my right is the road to Pontefract, passing the Water Tower & Plague Stone
To my left, it goes to Moor-Too, where it heads to Barnsley, meeting the Wakefield to Doncaster turnpike
Behind my bike, Purston Lane goes to Featherstone, passing the glorious Ackworth Old Hall, dating from the 1570s (l think) & supposedly part of the personal estate of James 1st

It shows the ‘TdeY’ bkes, a West Riding direction sign, & the old Cross

A supposed 'Plague Stone'
Between Lee Brigg & NewLands Estate

Though quite why, if it actually can be proven to be one, does it have a channel to allow the vinegar to flow away?
Unless............. water is lighter than the vinegars of the day & the two liquids separated?

I prefer to think that it was a gate-post, possibly moved here, that had a ball or finnial on it
