Bennerley Viaduct, Awsworth Road (part located in Erewash Borough), Awsworth - Broxtowe

Railway viaduct, 1878-9. An exceptional lattice ironwork structure nearly 500m in length, disused for decades. The risk largely arises from unchecked deterioration and the need for continuing maintenance. Historic England has given technical and pre-application advice to inform consents for repairs and the construction of a footpath and cycle route across the viaduct. An application to the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2017 for this major project was not successful. Revised project options are being discussed.
