I don’t care what anyone says: bridges are amazing things. The Penkridge Railway Viaduct over the River Penk looks dull (I admit) from a distance - but it is a work of art in fact.
Thomas Brassey was the contractor; and it opened for business in 1837. (This work was the making of Brassey – from then on he became the great railway builder of the century. His biography says that by 1847 he had built one out of every three rail miles in Britain...)
One of the wonders of Staffordshire!
