About

This viaduct was built in 1874 and spans 165 metres over the remains of mineral mines. The views from the viaduct span across to Meldon Dam and reservoir to the south west. The views of this dam almost 50 metres high are as impressive as the original engineering feat. Down the valley is Meldon Pool- the old limestone mine that still has 2 lime kilns. The trip up to this spot is worthwhile purely for the view of Dartmoor from such a well placed vantage point. Whether industrial history or natural beauty inspire you, you won’t be disappointed.
