Torksey Viaduct
Built 1847-49 to a design by John Fowler, the viaduct carried the Manchester Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway, Chesterfield - Lincoln line across the River Trent. The 20-span, 570ft eastern approach viaduct and two 130ft box girder spans across the Trent carried trains until the line closed in 1959, but the grade II* listed viaduct remains.
