Take a look at our July winner for the Wonders of Wrexham 2017 Calendar

Geraint Roberts who took the photograph said:

“I knew when I took the photograph that it was a great shot. Underneath the Arches is a spectacular event with a brilliant firework finale. I encourage everyone to keep on sending in those photographs particularly as we are now into the summer holidays and everyone will be out and about more.”

The event is an annual celebration of the World Heritage Site and sees local residents of all ages enjoying an evening of music and song which ends with the lighting up of the arches of the Aqueduct and the awesome firework display.
