View of the DLR viaduct over the Limehouse Basin #2
This stretch of the DLR is internationally important for its historic architecture. These particular arches were engineered by Robert Stephenson and G.P. Bidder in 1840 and form part of the second oldest urban railway viaduct in the world, originally built to carry the London & Blackwall Railway between the City and the Blackwall River Ferry. The viaduct was unused for 25 years between 1962 and 1987, before its current use for carrying the DLR today.
