PorthKerry Viaducy - one of the arches

Posted by
Philip (South Wales, United Kingdom) on 12 April 2011 in Documentary & Street.

A thing of beauty but apparently when built was not up to standard.

it was constructed of stone with thirteen 50 feet and three 45 feet arches, reaching a maximum height of 110 feet. Work on the viaduct was troubled by subsidence in 1896 causing the temporary closure and the construction of a loop line. The viaduct finally opened to traffic in 1900.

The underside of this arch seems to be reflective ?..Lovely shot,but the neck must be aching a tad.

@Jeff: Yes. Bit bizare. Had to obviously increase the brightness to show the detail. The underside of the arch brickwork has some sediment covering which goes yellow under this process!
