Liskeard Viaduct, Cornwall, 13 March 1894. This masonry and timber structure was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1803-1859) and completed in 1859. It carried the Cornwall Railway across a deep valley shortly before it entered Liskeard Station. The viaduct was rebuilt in stone and steel by the Great Western Railway (GWR) in 1898. Brunel is generally considered to be the greatest British civil engineer of the Victorian era. He became the chief engineer of the GWR from 1833 to 1858 and designed many bridges and viaducts.
