Crossed the Ouse Valley Viaduct during our Bluebell Railway Steam Trip. The views are fantastic and it is a fine example of this type of viaduct.

Built in the Victorian era, this is a great architectural structure. A public footpath passes underneath.

Not any official parking but a layby is opposite. Quite a fast road so take care when crossing. Got some nice photos from the field.
