Balcombe Viaduct

Situated in the Ouse Valley, West Sussex, the Balcombe Viaduct is a stunning architectural legacy from the Victorian age. Incorporating 37 arches, using over 11 million bricks, approximately 1,500 feet in length and 100 feet high, the viaduct was constructed by John Rastrick in 1841.

Restored from 1996 to 1999 with contributions from the Railway Heritage Trust and English Heritage, the viaduct is still in use today carrying the London to Brighton line. Parking is restricted in Borde Hill Lane, but there is a footpath leading to the viaduct.
