Farnley railway viaduct :: SE2832

Farnley viaduct runs for about 1150m from just west of Leeds central station, to just beyond the A643 Ingram Distributor road. Beyond that the line ran for a further 1200m on embankment westwards to the former Farnley and Wortley station. It was opened on 1 March 1882 by the London & North Western Railway to bypass the heavily congested area around Holbeck and Whitehall junctions. The viaduct has 83 arches and 10 bridges. It closed temporarily in December 1966 when the new Leeds City station opened, but was re-used from May 1967 until October 1987 when it closed permanently as it was unsuitable for the proposed electrification.
