The Ribblehead Viaduct. by gamelee

The Ribblehead Viaduct.

1,320 ft long, and 104 ft above the valley floor at its highest point, one thousand navvies built the viaduct, and around one hundred navvies were killed during its construction.
The first stone was laid on 12 October 1870 and the last in 1874.
I love this. Fav

What a wonderful image Lee, such good detail and the grey swirling clouds tie in so well with the viaduct itself. Fav.

You've got a great angle on the viaduct, Lee. It's very long, I know, so I guess it's not easy to get it in all its glory, even with a wide angle lens. Impressive capture, great depth too.

What a fantastic viaduct. A fav for me. I just love viaducts and thanks for explaining the history too. They weren't into health and safety in the 1800's
