Copley Viaduct is great but the real gem is the cricket pitch sandwiched between the viaduct, the river and the other railway line. Your photo captures the new pavilion building too. A Great place to drink beer whilst watching others run around like madmenPosted 4 years agobob_summersMember
DavidTaylforth, that’s Ulverston/Plumpton innit? We used to jump off that as kids, how we survived childhood I’ll never know.
Here’s a little one, near San Sebastian. Probably rideable if you’re not scared of heights like I am, although I have ended up riding onto it when not concentrating on the trail.
And this one, you ride on top of or beside the pipe for about 10km, hardly descending but utterly engaging with some quite nasty exposure.

Random fact from an old railway book, when they where building Stokport Viaduct, they where using horses and carts, horses dont like going backwards, and one reversed its load to fill in the viaduct piers, and went a bit to far, cart and horse fell down inside viaduct pier, and theyre still there today, no way and waste of money to get them out.
Some fantastic victorian engineering around.Posted 4 years ago
