Rumtickle Viaduct
Barnsley Council sign-boards call this Romticle Viaduct, local newspapers call it Rumtickle Viaduct and 1940s LNER plans call it Romptickle Viaduct. Built in 1844 from local faced Ashar Stone, it formed part of the Sheffield to Manchester Railway which opened in 1845. Whilst building the viaduct in 1844, a stone fell and killed a navvy, William Crawshaw. His workmates later built this stone block into the structure. The stone is 5th.from the right, 20 rows from the ground.
