Lowgill Viaduct


Lowgill Viaduct was built in 1859 by Joseph Locke and John Errington for the Ingleton Branch Line of the London and North Western Railway.[1] The 11 arched viaduct carried the railway over the valley of a beck, near the hamlet of Beck Foot, south of Lowgill, where there was once a railway station. The branch line closed in 1954 and the viaduct is now disused. It remains a prominent local landmark, which can be seen from the M6 motorway. The viaduct is Grade II listed.
