This viaduct was built in 1878 and extends across a wide valley of the river Welland south east of Uppingham in the county of Rutland. In August 2003 there were ceremonies and events to mark the 125th anniversary of the viaduct.
With its long straight top and perfectly formed arches - too many to count quickly - this viaduct is a visually captivating feature on the landscape. A remarkable feat of Victorian engineering, it harks back to the water aqueducts built by the Romans.
