This is a shot of the derelict Lobb Ghyll Viaduct, an incredible five arch construction hidden away in a bluebell wood by the River Wharfe to the south of Bolton Bridge in Yorkshire. Like most of the old railway structures in the area, it is hewn from a local type of rock called millstone grit. It was built by the Midland Railway in 1888 to connect Ilkley and Skipton. This stretch of the line was closed in 1965 in the Beeching Axe but a part of it lives on in the form of the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Steam Railway which begins at Bolton Abbey Station, just over half a mile up the old line to the north of this spot.

Newcastle-upon-Tyne is famous for it's "five bridges", even having a suite (musical) named for them.



They are the High-Level Bridge, Swing-bridge, Tyne Bridge, King Edward VII Bridge and Queen Elizabeth II Bridge.
A new addition is the Millennium Bridge (called "the blinking eye"). These pictures show the first three, plus the Millennium.

Cantlop Bridge is a single span cast-iron road bridge over the Cound Brook, located to the north of Cantlop in the parish of Berrington, Shropshire.
It was constructed in 1818 to a design (possibly by Thomas Telford, having at least been approved by him), and it replaced an unsuccessful cast iron coach bridge constructed in 1812.
The design of the bridge was innovative for the period, using a light-weight design of cast-iron lattice ribs to support the road deck in a single span, and appears to be a scaled-down version of a Thomas Telford bridge at Meole Brace, Shropshire (demolished in 1933).
It is the only surviving Telford-approved cast-iron bridge in Shropshire. It originally carried the turnpike road from Shrewsbury to Acton Burnell.
