Snippet Detail

Plate 193 is a context view from the south showing a Class 5 locomotive heading a northbound freight away from Armathwaite Tunnel, as the line curves to the right over Armathwaite Viaduct and along to Armathwaite station.  The line is still holding a raised position on the valley side as it descends towards Carlisle.

The platelayers' hut (/location-summaries/structure-297010) is on the left of the line before it heads over Armathwaite Viaduct.

Plate 194 is an evening view of Armathwaite Viaduct on 28 April 1967.  The Viaduct - No 320 - 297miles 23 chains is 176 yards long was constructed entirely of stone between 1871 and 1874.  The gently curving viaduct, with nine spans each of 44ft 7in, stands 80ft above the valley.
