The railway viaduct at Angarrack
The railway viaduct at Angarrack
The original viaduct at Angarrack was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel for the west Cornwall Railway and was built wholly of timber on stone footings. It was nearly 800 feet (240 m) long and 100 feet (30 m) high. The present viaduct of roughly the same dimensions was an entirely new replacement structure and opened by the Great Western Railway in 1885. Its eleven stone arches each have a span of 56.5 feet (17.2 m).
