Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct & Canal has overcome the first formal hurdle in its bid to become Wales's third and newest World Heritage Site, says www.wrexham.gov.uk. The nomination, five years in the planning, has been accepted as one of a limited number of sites selected to reach the full UNESCO assessment phase for 2008.
