Ribblehead Viaduct

View from RTC's steam-hauled return railtour from Carlisle to Preston, looking south-east from Ribblehead Viaduct on the Settle & Carlisle Line, on the afternoon of Saturday, 14th March 2020. This magnificent structure took five years to construct between 1870 and 1875, is 440 yards long, 104 feet high and has 24 spans. It was designed by an architect named John Sydney Crossley of whom I have been unable to discover anything.
