Viaducts leadEdit

The large number of Cornwall Railway viaducts were necessitated by the topography of Cornwall, United Kingdom, where hills and areas of high ground are separated by deep river valleys that generally run north or south. Thus when the Cornwall Railway (the first main line railway in the county) was constructed on an east-west route, it had to cross numerous valleys and 42 viaducts of a distinctive type were built.

On no other main line of railway in the United Kingdom were there so many viaducts per mile as those on the 80 miles between Plymouth and Penzance – a total of 43 spanning in aggregate a distance of nearly five miles – while on the branch between Truro and Falmouth, there were a further eight[1]

These viaducts were built by contractors, most to a series of standardised designs by the Victorian railway engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel. They consisted of timber deck spans supported by fans of timber bracing built on masonry piers. This unusual method of construction substantially reduced the cost of initial construction compared to an all-masonry structure, albeit at the cost of more expensive maintenance. Replacement of the timber viaducts by all-masonry structures began in the 1870s but a few remained in service until the 1930s.
