Holbeck Viaduct, Leeds
The viaduct is commonly known as the Holbeck viaduct, but its proper title was the Farnley viaduct. The Farnley viaduct was built by the London & North Western railway company in 1882. The viaduct is built of black engineering bricks. The viaduct extends from Gelderd Road to Globe Road into the City station network. It is a construction of masonry arches, with six metal bridge sections spanning highways and railway track. The viaduct has 85 arches, three accommodation bridges, and six under-bridges and fly-over passes.

The Leeds Newspaper in 1869 proudly proclaimed "The new viaduct is an undertaking which will rank among the many great engineering feats in the annals of railway enterprise"
