The Grade II-listed Drury Dam Viaduct was named after a Mansfield flour mill owner called Daniel Drury. It was built in 1875 and originally carried a spur of the Midland Railway Company’s Southwell-Mansfield line over the Maun Valley between Mansfield's East and South junctions. The line first carried traffic on 3rd April 1871, although the section over the viaduct was closed in October 1872, only to reopen again on 28th January 1906. The route continued to carry coal traffic from Rufford Colliery until 12th December 1983. The structure curves slightly to the north at its eastern end and comprises nine or ten segmental brick arches. At its western end a single cast-iron skew span with four rib arches with pierced spandrels and a panelled iron parapet, carries the viaduct over Quarry Lane (identifiable by the car). The viaduct was restored in 1989 and now carries walkers and cyclists over the River Maun on this section of the Maun Valley Trail. Although the presence of a number of trailers gives the impression of a traffic congestion on the viaduct, these trailers are parked on the other side of the bridge, where SDC Trailers manufactures trailers, not on the viaduct.
