The announcement which was confirmed on Saturday evening by a panel representing 21 nations at a UNESCO meeting in Spain now confirms that The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal which spans the Shropshire and Wales border will now join Shropshire's other World Heritage Site of Ironbridge.
Built by Thomas Telford between 1795 and 1805, the aqueduct is regarded as one of Telford's greatest achievements incorporating a cast iron trough on top of 18 stone piers which carries the canal 126 feet above the river.
The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct near Oswestry now joins a list of 900 landmarks deemed to have 'outstanding universal value' for humanity.
