The aqueduct is a pioneering engineering structure utilising both cast and wrought Iron to form the aqueduct arches. The grade 1 structure is part of the wider UNESCO World Heritage site and a series of modern assessment techniques have been utilised to understand the structural form, condition and integrity of Telford’s original design.
