ABC Wednesday - V for Viaduct

The Brighton Viaduct was built in the 1840s and as you can see is still in use. It has 27 arches and about 10 million bricks and is listed as Grade II for its historical and architectural significance. This status is given to "particularly important buildings of more than special interest". It is one of 70 Grade II-listed buildings and structures in the city of Brighton and Hove.

  1. 70, not too many to all appear on here in time. I get the train often, but on the train is perhaps not the best place to get good pics.
    I have an old stone structure on Leeds Photography in Yorkshire today.

  2. Wow! 27 arches! It's such an amazing structure!

  3. Brighton is just full of wonderful architecture, isn't it? Those old seaside houses - the pavilion, too! I must come back one day and take a walk around.

    The viaduct is very similar to one we have up here at Harringworth. It must have been spectacular crossing it in the train!

  4. That brings back so many memories of my time in the UK and Brighton.... I miss it so very much!
