River Trent viewed from the Torksey Viaduct
This viaduct, designed by Sir John Fowler and completed in 1849, carried the main line of the Manchester, Sheffield & Lincolnshire Railway over the River Trent.
The main span over the river was modified in 1897 to improve its strength. The railway closed in 1959, and the viaduct is now listed Grade II*.
The viaduct was restored, and opened to the public, in 2016.
River Trent

The River Trent is the third longest river in England (185 miles). It rises on Biddolph Moor, Staffordshire, then follows a generally north east to northerly path to join the River Ouse at Trent Falls. The Ouse & Trent combined form the Humber Estuary.
It is a very important river, economically having a number of Power Stations and industrial sites along its banks. It is navigable as far as Burton-On-Trent.
