Photographic notes
The line over the viaduct runs south east to north west and will favour shots from early morning to around lunch time.
The area is quiet with the only other noises emanating from either the road, or the river.

Fortunately you can cross over the river using a foot bridge mounted under the viaduct. Being a metal grid affair it can be a bit intimidating as you can see down to the river below.
