Cannington Viaduct

          The Cannington viaduct is near “Uplyme“, which in turn is near to Lyme Regis.

          We’ve just returned from a few days camping in Uplyme, I’ll tell you all about that soon, but I’m sorting through my photos and the first ones I took were of the viaduct.

          The sun was shining when we arrived and once the tent was up we set off on a short circular walk to see the viaduct.  The map we had been given sent us off through a gap in the hedge, over a style and a small bridge and across a field full of sheep heading for one of the “best views”.

           More from before: our weeek in “Lyme Regis” in April 2012.

    • Thanks, according to wikipedia, the one arch has brickwork in it as an extra support because of subsidence so the detail on that one arch was added later.

    • Thanks, it’s enormous, I had hoped to go to the top and take a picture from there but the disused railway track which runs across the top has been recalimed by nature and is pretty much inaccessable now.

  2. That is special. Pity it seems not to be in use any longer. I would love to cross one of these impressive structures in a barge… the views!

    • Eldest daughter crossed one on a barge holiday last summer, she said it was really scary because on the one side all she could see was the sheer drop ! 🙂
      Hey, maybe you should come on a barge holiday to England and I can visit you on the Oxford canal ! 😀

    • Thanks, we followed directions and a map to where it said was the best viewpoint and this was the view when we emerged from a small footpath … they were right. 🙂

    • Thanks, the top one was taken from the viewpoint shown on a hand-drawn map we put just 20p in a local charity box for. It was a wonderful view and I put a little more in the box after we returned. 🙂
