About this image
Looking northwest, from just north of Bowden Lane. A magnificent bifurcating double railway viaduct crosses the Black Brook, tributary to the Goyt, on which Chapel Milton is situated. One section of the viaduct diverges and curves to the west whilst the other (built a little later) curves to the east as the line, coming up from the south, links up with the main line between Sheffield and Manchester. At one time the western section carried express trains from London (St Pancras) to Manchester (London Road). The viaducts now carry considerable loads of quarried stone from the works around Buxton.
