It was built by Thomas Telford and has been standing since 1801 with a total of 10 arches. Also on the Canal at Chirk you will find the ‘Darkie Tunnel’ a 1,200ft long tunnel that runs straight after the Aqueduct on your way into Chirk.
If you are looking for somewhere to eat or drink whilst in Chirk, theres a number of great pubs and restaurants both in the town itself and dotted alongside the canal. Whilst in Chirk a trip to the castle is to good to miss. Now owned by the National Trust, Chirk Castle was built by Edward I in 1295. Chirk castle is also home to an award winning 5.5 acre garden that is a delight to see in full bloom during the summer months, there is also an onsite tearoom to help you enjoy a full day out.
