Stonehouse Pool Viaduct

Jump to: navigation, search

Double track viaduct with five fans of struts on each of the dwarf piers.

57 feet high, 321 feet long on 5 dwarf piers; rebuilt with iron girders on brick piers in 1908. The girders have since been removed and a steel work of art has been erected in its place.

It was built on a curve in Plymouth between Five Fields Lane (now North Road West) and Stuart Road. The southern end marked the boundary between the Cornwall Railway and the joint station shared with the South Devon Railway. The land below the viaduct was the head of a tidal creek but is now drained and forms a park.
