A GROUP of travellers have pitched up at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct's car park. 

The group set up an encampment at the world heritage site's main car park in Cefn Mawr. 

Wrexham Council says it is private land, but that the landowner is "aware" of the issue. 

The iconic aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee was constructed in the early 19th century and is also a Grade I listed building.
