Stunning views
Nov 2019
I have walked across the Hownsgill Viaduct a few times now. I knew it was well worth a visit, so today when I was walking with some friends on part of the Waskerley Way I just had to show them this fantastic place. If you want details of the walk you can see it on my blog.

An autumn visit
Sep 2019
I keep meaning to get a photo from the road, but this time the weather was not good enough. Paths were wet so not such a pleasant walk, and the views shrouded in mist - very atmospheric.

Historic reminder of the old railway!

Historic reminder of the old railway though unfortunately also known for other reasons by many locals.
A great place for a walk in the fresh air!

It’s a big bridge

It’s a big bridge, I have crossed it hundreds of times. It does it’s job but could do with being resurfaced.

Stunning relic of the old railway
Apr 2019 • Family
We visited the Hownsgill viaduct while out walking. Its at a junction of the Waskerley way and Lanchester valley railway paths, so very accessible to walkers and cyclists. The views from the viaduct are stunning, but the viaduct itself is best seen from the main road.
