Notes about this historic site

1 This is located off Willenhall Lane, Brandon. A Bourne print shows a 15 fine arch masonry viaduct with nine wide elliptically headed arches. Flanked by battlemented buttresses and 3 tall narrow arches terminated by further short battlemented buttresses. The view today is somewhat different – there seems to have been some encasing of some of the arches by embankment though the rusticated masonry is still very evident.
