British Waterways are offering members of the public the chance to go along to an open day at the Iron Trunk Aqueduct.

Pop along and find out what works British Waterways will be doing to help restore this waterway wonder.

Engineers from British Waterways will be carrying out a series of works to help restore this iconic Georgian structure back to its former glory.

A team of experts will be on hand to show you what repairs are being carried out to the aqueduct and explain why it is in need of a makeover.

Delve into the history of the aqueduct, take a tour along and underneath it and join in guided walks along the canal.

The aqueduct, which celebrated its 200th birthday on 21st January 2011, carries the Grand Union Canal over the River Great Ouse and links the communities of Cosgrove and Wolverton.

It was built by Leighton Buzzard based canal engineer Benjamin Beaven, the aqueduct is in fact a replacement structure as the previous brick aqueduct fell down in the night on the 18 February 1808.

If you are close to the Iron Trunk Aqueduct on your Canal Boat Holiday on the 26th February why not moor up and go along to this exciting event.
