Most Cork people are familiar with the Chetwynd Railway Viaduct built over the Bandon Road near Bishopstown. Here it is from the top, in 2005.
An important and substantial landmark designed by Charles Nixon, Engineer, which makes a dramatic contribution to the surrounding area. It carried trains on its single line from Cork to West Cork until 1961. It stands 90ft above the road and has a 21ft span. The viaduct displays fine craftsmanship in the stone work seen in the piers and excellent design in the elegant steel arches.buildingsofireland.ie
