SO5112 : Arches at Monmouth

Arches at Monmouth
Arches at Monmouth
The remains of the viaduct which took the Wye Valley Railway across the Wye at Monmouth, on the way to Tintern and Chepstow, stand pointlessly in the sun on a January afternoon in 2009. A girder section took the line across the river: this was removed for scrap after the line's closure in 1964 and its overgrown abutment can be seen on the far bank of the river. What remains of the viaduct is something of a local landmark, but it's deteriorating rapidly and there's talk of it having to be demolished.
