The London Road viaduct

The London Road viaduct was completed in 1846; is nearly a ¼ mile long, has 27 arches, and used approximately 10 million bricks. It was originally built without parapets but this caused the passengers such vertigo that parapets were added later, not that they would be of any practical use. It was grade II* listed by English Heritage in 1974. 

It is worrying to see buddleia growing out of the brickwork.
