Arnside

Arnside Viaduct,Watercolour 20 x 30 cm

Ruth's Coastal Walk along the coast of Lancashire -  The Arnside viaduct


The railway line is carried over the River Kent on this viaduct 552 yards long, with 50 piers. It was built in 1857 and rebuilt in 1915.

Along the route Ruth comments 
Traffic is light and the walk is pleasant, with intermittent bursts of sunlight lighting up the surrounding fields. The railway line is below me and the occasional train rumbles by. In fact, the train runs closer to the water than any road or footpath at this point.
