Kirkstall Viaduct

Kirkstall Viaduct or the Leeds and Thirsk Railway Viaduct is considered  one of the finest pieces of railway architecture in the area.

Built in 1846 to the designs of Thomas Grainger, the viaduct consists of a succession of arches crossing the valley and the busy Kirkstall Road.

The section of the viaduct that crosses the canal includes attractive rusticated voussoirs and niches in the flanking abutments and piers.
