Stockport Viaduct

This huge landmark straddles the centre of Stockport and is the town’s most famous landmark. It was built in 1840 to carry the railway from Manchester to London across the River Mersey.

Over 11 million bricks were used in the construction of its 27 arches, making it one of the largest brick structures in Europe.

Manchester Artist LS Lowry featured it in a number of his works including Industrial Landscape and The Viaduct.

The Crown Inn, situated on Heaton Lane under one of the arches, is widely regarded as one of the UK’s best real ale pubs.
