Knaresborough Nidd Viaduct

The present Knaresborough Viaduct was completed in October 1851. The first effort collapsed 3 years earlier. It is 338 ft in length and is 90 ft high. The 4 arches span the River Nidd forming a bridge that is still used by local rail services to connect the town with Harrogate/Leeds to the west & south and York to the east.
