Viaduct, The Peak District


Went to Manchester. Stopped in the Peak District on the way back.

This is Monsal.

One of my heroes is the Victorian artist and critic John Ruskin. He disapproved of building a railway line through such a place of beauty.

The railway has gone now, but the viaduct remains, for walkers and cyclists. It may have looked even better before, but it’s still beautiful.
