The value of the structure lies in its beauty.
It’s elegant and strong and trips across the flood plain seeming right for the place it stands in.
Picking its way across the plain.
It mirrors the actions of the water birds that poke amongst the reeds on their stilt legs.
They and the aqueduct together reinforce the spirit of the place, sitting lightly on the land and water, delicately poised and in so far as they are both gradually disintegrating they are of the essence of the place, slipping back into the long history of this land. A noble and truthful relic of the past going back to the beginning
