Wheel Drums, Hengoed Viaduct, South Wales
Wheel Drums, Hengoed Viaduct, South Wales
The listed Hengoed Viaduct (aka Maesycwmmer) carried the former Great Western Railway's Cross Valleys line over the Rhymney Valley. A cyclepath, part of NCN47, now crosses the viaduct and to commemorate its opening one of Britain's most strikingly distinctive sculptures is in place. Andy Hazell's Wheel Drums is formed of six life-size replicas of coal wagons curved vertically and joined buffer-to-buffer into the shape of a wheel.
