I grew up in the North of England, where seeing beautiful countryside, green fields, sheep, hedgerows and dry stone walls is usual. (You’ll have seen these in some of my Yorkshire posts.) Viaducts are also a common occurrence.
A viaduct is a bridge constructed of several small arches to cross a valley. The ones I know are all railway bridges.
It was only when I travelled to other places, such as South Africa, that I came to realise that they were not universally well-known or common.
These viaducts in Yorkshire support railway tracks, with road traffic passing beneath. There are a great many of these beautiful old stone structures all around the area.
I snapped these photos through the car windscreen as my sister drove.
I like the effect of Closer, Closer, Wow!
