The Lockwood Viaduct was built in the 1840s and has thirty-two graceful arches. At least two men died during its construction and many others were injured. A couple of sport-related records are associated with it, lobbing a cricket ball and driving a golf ball. This requires a clearance height of some two-hundred feet and several successes have been recorded over the last hundred years. Recent ones have had to take into account the railway timetable, as it is still in daily use. In our opinion, the Lockwood Viaduct is as much art as architecture.
