The Welland Viaduct near Harringworth

Caption - The Welland Viaduct near Harringworth, Northamptonshire. This view taken from the Seaton Road shows 27 of the 82 arches of the Welland Viaduct which is also known as the Seaton Viaduct or the Harringworth Viaduct after the two villages on either side of the valley. Not surprisingly in Seaton they tend to refer to it as the former and in Harringworth as the latter. It is officially the Welland Viaduct after the river which it crosses and the fact it strides across the Welland Valley. The viaduct was completed in the 1870s and is the longest masonry viaduct across a valley in Britain.

Location Map

Rutland is one of the smallest counties in the UK and is in the East Midlands. Walking opportunities are limited by the physical size of the county which is dominated by the large expanse of Rutland Water which almost bisected by the Hambleton Peninsula. Many of the walks are in fact based around this peninsula and the shores of the reservoir which at the time of construction in 1971 was the largest artificial lake in Europe.
