The Longdon-on-Tern aquaduct was the world's first large-scale cast iron navigable aqueduct. Designed by Thomas Telford, the aqueduct was constructed in 1796 as part of the Shrewsbury Canal. Although the canal was abandoned in 1944, the aqueduct remains and is Grade I listed and a scheduled ancient monument, situated in fields astride the River Tern. Telford went on to build the very much larger Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, now a World Heritage Site.
