There are 37 arches in total at Ouse Valley Viaduct, making for an impressive spectacle (especially for the gram photo!). But the real highlight is the mesmerising view through the arches underneath the viaduct.

Bit of an architecture marvel with it's quite unique brick layout at the bottom. Can be quite difficult to park if you don't want a long walk from the reservoir car park, which can be quite muddy with any recent rain. – Google Review

In terms of architecture, the bridge is very unique (a whopping 11 million bricks were used for construction!). Despite so many years of visitors and especially the increased amount due to the lockdowns, Ouse Valley Viaduct is still in very good condition and the rail traffic is very heavy.
