Here are a some nice photos of Balcombe Ouze Valley viaduct ...
Somewhere I have figures for how many bricks, man-years it all was in the making.
Let me see ...
- 11 million Dutch bricks.
- 96 ft high.
- 1475 ft long.
- Grade 2 listed building.
- Designers John Urpeth Rastrick & David Mocatta.
- £38500 to build.
- Built 1841.... opened in 1842 .... still carries over 100 trains / day.........fantastic achievement..... beautiful!
Surely worth a visit, if not a whole day out!
Oh you didn't dance?
Perhaps next time -eh! :-)
