Riddlesdown Viaduct

Posted in England by folkestonejack on March 4, 2011

A short midday detour took me to Riddlesdown Viaduct to see 6O10 Forders to East Grinstead cross with empties for the Bluebell Railway. The viaduct looks quite picturesque in old photographs with the quarry in the background (as can be seen in a photograph from 1907 in the Francis Frith collection) but not quite so scenic today with a bright blue warehouse tucked underneath the viaduct!
