The Viaduct


The opening of the Plymouth to Falmouth railway line in 1859 celebrated a massive feat of engineering. Much of Cornwall is traversed by north or south running, deep river valleys. As the railway line runs east to west, laying the line necessitated the construction of 42 viaducts with wooden, fan-like structures placed upon stone plinths supporting the track. The Carvedos Viaduct, 1/4 mile east of Truro Railway Station, was one such structure. This viaduct was replaced in 1902 by the stone structure that still carries the Cornwall main line from The Tamar to Penzance.

Shirley Netherton

I am a Cornish artist who has spent many years developing my unique style of painting with acrylics so that today my work is instantly recognisable. I feel lucky that the hobbies which I enjoy in my free time contribute towards my intense enthusiasm for painting. The photographs I take whilst walking and kayaking become the reference material for my work. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful county, surrounded by the sea with so many inland waterways - truly inspirational.
