United Kingdom: Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

On 22nd July I got a postcard from the United Kingdom.

It shows the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee. It was finished in 1805 and is the longest and highest aqueduct in Great Britain. The aqueduct is considered to be a pioneering masterpiece of engineering and monumental metal architecture. Since 2009 is the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With great stamps:
Queen's Head
Year of the Monkey (from set of twenty) (issued 2016)

It is a joint issue with France.

Thank You very much Anu!
