The British Landscape by John Davies
Caption: England, Stockport viaduct, Stockport, 1986
At Stockport the River Mersey passes through a valley of sandstone cliffs. An Anglo Saxon boundary river, it once separated the warring kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria, later becoming the border between the counties of Lancashire and Cheshire. Stockport's viaduct was built in 1839 as part of the rail route between Manchester and Birmingham. Further construction in 1880 doubled its size, making it the largest brick built structure in Europe. It still carries the Manchester-London main-line railway today.
