    Fantastic spot to visit, small car park nearby, and occasionally a food van in the right weather. If you look in to it you can be there for when the steam train goes over it.

    Ribblehead viaduct is one of Yorkshire's most iconic sights. The viaduct's superb positioning between the Three Peaks makes it a photographer's dream and a delightful place to take in the scenery.

    The viaduct is 1,312 feet (400 meters) long with 24 arches spanning across Batty Moss. Built between 1870 and 1874, approximately 1,000 labourers worked on its construction.

    Such an iconic structure in the Yorkshire Dales. A key milestone that you pass when walking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks route
