SX5388 : Lake Viaduct

taken 11 years ago, near to Sourton, Devon, Great Britain

Lake Viaduct
Lake Viaduct
The viaduct was built in 1874 to carry the Okehampton-Tavistock railway. The disused line is now the Granite Way, a cycleway. This is the east side, seen from a bridge over one of the streams crossed by the viaduct.
Granite Way
The Granite Way is a 9-mile cycle route, most of it along the former railway line between Okehampton and Lydford, and opened in May 2002. It forms part of NCN27, and makes use of impressive viaducts at Meldon and Lake. The route runs along the northwest edge of the Dartmoor National Park, and the two viaducts offer views of the moor.

Until 2013, the railway route was broken near Southerly, using lanes to cross the A386. This gap was filled in late 2013.
