位於威爾斯東北部,長達18公里旁特斯沃泰水道橋與運河是工業革命時代土木工程的一項重大成就。完工於19世紀初的運河,為了跨越不同地理位置的限制,必須運用各種土木工程技術,尤其是在未規劃使用水閘的情況下建造。水道橋則是一處開創性的工程傑作,使用永久性金屬結構所建築而成,由當時著名的土木工程師湯瑪士‧泰爾福德(Thomas Telford)設計興建。同時使用澆鑄技術與鍛鐵的結果,讓水道橋所建成的弧拱得以又輕又穩固,創造出穩固與優雅並重的視覺效果。此處遺產地以其傑出的創意與天才巨作而被登錄,也可說是是歐洲當時各項建築技術應用的總成。同時此處亦被公認是足以啟發全世界許多不同工程的創新建築。

Situated in north-eastern Wales, the 18 kilometre long Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal is a feat of civil engineering of the Industrial Revolution, completed in the early years of the 19th century. Covering a difficult geographical setting, the building of the canal required substantial, bold civil engineering solutions, especially as it was built without using locks. The aqueduct is a pioneering masterpiece of engineering and monumental metal architecture, conceived by the celebrated civil engineer Thomas Telford. The use of both cast and wrought iron in the aqueduct enabled the construction of arches that were light and d strong, producing an overall effect that is both monumental and elegant. The property is inscribed as a masterpiece of creative genius, and as a remarkable synthesis of expertise already acquired in Europe. It is also recognized as an innovative ensemble that inspired many projects all over the world.
