A beautiful, atmospheric place - spectacular and wild. There's a good path to it.Don't miss the information boards on the main road at the site of the camp where the labourers lived - fascinating background.

I visited the viaduct on Sunday and yes it is impressive but no more than the Findhorn viaduct in Inverness or the Glenffinan (Hogwort ) viaduct. They are all an amazing feat if engineering.

What an amazing piece of workmanship. Very busy, not a lot of space to park your car. Well worth taking the time to have a look if you are in the area

For the first time I walked to the viaduct. I had passed many times, but never stopped. The structure is much larger than I had thought and I was amazed as to what must have been involved in the construction

You can only think of one thing when you're under the arches is how did they do it, it's also worth a visit to the station museum as they have an exhibition that explains just that.

If you find yourself driving along the road from Ingleton to Hawes and spot the viaduct in the distance don`t just drive by. Pull over and walk the short distance to the feet of one of the pillars and look up at the great height...More

The picture tells a story. This magnificent structure stands against a summer sky. It would look even better on a glowering November day with the driving rain as its accompaniment. It wasn't a long drive from our hotel to view the viaduct. It was a...More

Originally there were two tracks over the viaduct, but during repair and reconstruction this has been reduced to a single track, reverting to double at each end of the structure. Ruth.
