Stretching 400 metres across the Ribble Valley, this Grade II listed viaduct acts as a key feature on the Settle to Carlisle train line. It has 24 stone arches and elevates the railway line 32 metres above the boggy moor. It was built in the late 19th century by a workforce of 2,300 men. It was built using primarily manual labour. Due to the dangerous working conditions, at least 100 men lost their lives in its construction. It’s possible to walk along the length of the viaduct and to weave your way beneath its massive arches. This impressive feature is visible from all the surrounding peaks and is a key structure in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Image Credits: Sam Robbins on Unsplash
