Knaresborough viaduct

Grade II* Listed the railway viaduct was completed by Thomas Grainger in 1851 to carry a branch of the Leeds & Thirsk Railway (Leeds Northern Railway) three years after the first viaduct had collapsed into the river as it neared completion. The four-span bridge stands 78ft high above the water, each span measuring 56ft 9in across. Approximately 350ft long the replacement bridge cost 9,803.00 to construct.

River Nidd

The River Nidd is a tributary of the River Ouse in North Yorkshire. The Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust YDRT has a remit to conserve the ecological condition of the river Nidd from its headwaters to the Humber estuary. The river gets its name for the Celtic word for brilliant.
The upper river valley, Nidderdale, was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1994.
The river is 95 Km long.
