Cannington Viaduct
This 600ft long viaduct was opened in August 1903 to carry steam trains on the branch line from Axminster to Lyme Regis. It was one of the first two railway viaducts in the UK to be constructed entirely from mass concrete that had not been reinforced, the other being the Borrodale Viaduct. Unfortunately the builders encountered subsidence and had to fill-in and reinforce the arch on the left.
Sadly the line was closed in 1965 and this is all that remains except for the original Lyme Regis Station, which was rescued and now used as a buffet at Alresford station in Hampshire.
