Eskmeals Viaduct

Eskmeals viaduct was built in 1868 and still has its original wrought iron girders, which were strengthened in the 1920s, and its red sandstone piers which support the structure in the estuary itself.

A multi-million-pound project to improve this crucial coastal viaduct will start next month to make journeys faster and more reliable for Cumbrian Coast line passengers.
