Torksey Viaduct over River Trent, Trent Side, Torksey / Rampton - West Lindsey

Tubular iron girder railway bridge and viaduct, 1849. Designed by John Fowler. The main span was strengthened in 1897. Disused since the closure of the line in 1959 and decayed slowly thereafter. Repairs carried out in 2015 to enable a public footpath to be constructed along one side of the viaduct. The other side is unused and some further repairs are required. The footpath opened in April 2016.
