Slateford Aqueduct and Viaduct
Slateford Aqueduct and Viaduct
The aqueduct in the foreground was built in 1822 to carry the Union Canal across Inglis Green Road and the Water of Leith, its eight arches running for a total length of 600 feet. Thomas Telford described it as "superior perhaps to any aqueduct in the kingdom". The railway viaduct behind it was built in 1847 by William Arrol who went on to build the Bothwell, Broomielaw, second Tay and Forth bridges and London's Tower Bridge.
