RIBBLEHEAD VIADUCT

RIBBLEHEAD VIADUCT

The Ribblehead Viaduct soars 100 feet above the valley and is a landmark in the Yorkshire Dales, just north of Ingleton. It was constructed in the 1870s, the navvies who built it living in shanty towns nearby, few traces of which remain. There are information boards near the viaduct which give a bit of background. A fictional account of its construction was given in the TV series, 'Jericho'. These days, the Ribblehead Viaduct still carries the Carlisle to Settle railway. It is also on the path of many walks and the starting point for the obvious hack up nearby Whernside.
