CIHT Wales – Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Prior to the AGM of the N Wales CIHT we were treated to a trip over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on a barge. Members were given a potted history of the structure and discussions ranged over various projects that members had been involved in.The thread is still clean after 200 years of servive
We were able to contribute a small piece of history of our own in the shape of an original bolt from the aqueduct, which despite its over 210 years of service still retained much of its orriginal servicebility. Protection was given to these blacksmith forged bolts by wrapping them in horse hair and tallow.A bolt removed from Pontcysyllte Aqueduct during restoration
