RIBBLEHEAD AT SUNDOWN
Ribblehead Viaduct.

Standing over 100 feet above the valley floor on Batty Moor, this Grade II listed building was finally completed in 1874 and cost the lives of over 100 workers.

Situated on the Settle-to-Carlisle line, which itself escaped closure by British Rail in the 1980's, it comprises 24 arches and is over one quarter of a mile in length.

Always worth a visit in any weather condition (except fog, of course), it is an extremely photogenic landmark which dominates the bleak, yet scenic countryside.

In this image, the curiously named Battywife Beck (the mind boggles) leads the eye towards the distant viaduct.
