Today I’d like to show an engineering marvel the Harringworth Viaduct, which crosses the Welland Valley to the north of us. It has the most arches in a single structure in the UK, I believe it’s 82. It was built for the railways and gradually it’s being used more again. Recently the rail companies have restarted a train service linking up Corby to Melton Mowbray and the towns in Rutland.
The village beside the viaduct is a typically rural with a superb public house – The White Swan. There’s also a lovely church just down from it – St John the Baptist, worth a viewing. I’m sure an artist could use this Victorian backdrop for a video for a song?
Hope you like the views as much as we did.
