Sunset at Eynsford Viaduct by 

Eynsford Viaduct spans the River Darent at Eynsford in Kent, UKCanon EOS1000D RAW processed using Topaz Adjust in Photoshop CS5

This impressive nine-arched red-brick viaduct is a prominent feature on the line to the delightfully-named ‘’Bat & Ball’’ station. The structure was built by the independent ‘’Sevenoaks Railway’‘, incorporated in 1859 to link the ’’Chatham’’ main line with the market town of Sevenoaks. The branch was initially single-track, seeing its first services on 2nd June 1862, but the viaduct was built to accommodate two tracks from the outset, because the line was doubled in the following year. A Maidstone extension from Otford opened on 1st June 1874, this again single-track, but following in the footsteps of the original Bat & Ball line, this was soon doubled, two-track working commencing on 11th August 1875. The viaduct has nine arches of 30-foot span, and rises to a height of 75-feet above the valley.

    A beautiful land way
    with a creek passing through,
    lines and arches
    a magnificent view.

    Pleasant to look at,
    to my eyes it’s fun,
    and the crowning glory
    that incredible sun!

    A very good capture Dave… and reading the history was a bonus.


  • Thanks very much and the words Rog appreciated
