Only one thing wrong with it - not used any more.

For a description I can do little better than copy from: LinkExternal link
On the western side of the village is a viaduct on the disused Bristol and North Somerset Railway, built in 1873 which was closed to trains in 1968 after the great flood of Pensford (the River Chew flooded), after which it was deemed unsafe. The last passenger train had been earlier: the 9.25 a.m. from Frome to Bristol on 31st October 1959, and after that there were only goods trains (mainly bringing coal from Radstock) and those ceased in 1964 and very occasional excursion trains. The Pensford viaduct is 995 feet long, reaches a maximum height of 95 feet to rail level and consists of sixteen arches. The viaduct is now a Grade II listed building.
