Uppermill Viaduct Tree(s)

This viaduct – a listed building – carries trains along the line over the pennines between Yorkshire and Manchester. It is a lovely journey to take and the brief run between Marsden and Greenfield is well worth a go; it takes in the fascinating standedge tunnel, (pronounced “stannige” with excellent views and nice pubs at both ends (although, truth be told some pubs in Marsden are a bit strange if you ask me no offence intended).

Anyway, there are quite a few trees growing out of the side of the viaduct, which surely can’t be a good thing for the structure – even if the upside is some great shots for this site.
