Ribblehead Viaduct

The Ribblehead Viaduct, on the Settle-Carlisle railway line is a classic example of how beautiful architecture can really add to a landscape. The 24 enormous stone arches span the Batty Moss valley at Ribblehead, providing both valuable transport links but also a visual link, allowing the eye to wander around the scene. Built between 1870 and 1874, the Ribblehead Viaduct is now a Grade II listed structure. It shouldn't be forgotten the toll that the construction of Ribblehead Viaduct had. 100's of Navvies lost their life, either as a direct result of the construction or due to the outbreak of disease in the supporting settlements.
