NS7057 : Remains of Craighead Viaduct

taken 12 years ago, near to Bothwell, South Lanarkshire, Great Britain

Remains of Craighead Viaduct
Remains of Craighead Viaduct
These brick piers are the remains of a railway bridge, which carried the Hamilton and Bothwell line of the North British Railway over the River Clyde. The bridge was built by Sir William Arrol of Dalmarnock. His company, Sir William Arrol & Co, would later built the Forth Rail Bridge.

The houses in the background are in Grieve Croft in Bothwell. The photograph was taken from a point near the Clyde Walkway, which I was following at the time.

[By the time this photo was submitted, the piers had already gone (they had been demolished about a year earlier), and the point from which the photo was taken was inside a construction site, but it had been in an open grassy area when the picture was taken.]
