THE mayor of Milton Keynes was on hand to officially unveil completed work at the Iron Trunk Aqueduct – which cost more than £250,000.

Councillor Catriona Morris visited the site in Wolverton last weekend, to see the site which has benefited from a grant donated by the National Heritage Fund.

The aqueduct celebrated its bicentenary last year and the money went towards vital repairs and restoration.

The grant was awarded by not-for-profit company WREN – Waste, Recycling and Environment – and was part of a Heritage Fund launched in 2010 which helps to protect Grade 1 and two-star listed buildings and structures of historical importance.

WREN awards grants to community, conservation and heritage projects within a 10-mile radius of landfill sites, from funds donated by Waste Recycling Group to the Landfill Communities Fund.
