Welland Viaduct

Welland Viaduct

WELLAND VIADUCT (SEATON/HARRINGWORTH): Crossing the Welland Valley between Seaton in Rutland and Harringworth on the Northamptonshire border, this magnificent viaduct is over 1km long and has 82 arches, each of which spans 12m. It was completed in 1878 as part of the Oakham to Kettering railway line: passenger trains rarely use it, though it’s a popular route for special steam train runs, and freight often uses the viaduct.

WING TURF MAZE: This labyrinth, cut into the turf on the edge of the village of Wing is about 14 metres in diameter. It’s great fun for small children to trace their way round and round this circular maze to the centre. The maze may date to the medieval period, though no-one knows for sure.
