Description

Lithographic print by George Childs, showing a view of the Ouse Viaduct, West Susex, with sheep and cows grazing in a field in the foreground. The London & Brighton Railway was formed in the 1840s to provide a direct route from London to the increasingly popular resort of Brighton, Susex. The engineer George Rennie (1791-1866) proposed a route which incorporated a viaduct acros the Ouse Valley near Ardingly. Completed in March 1841, it was constructed from 37 arches. The viaduct was still in use at the start of the 21st century.
