Misty Viaduct, Uplyme.


At 600ft, the Cannington Viaduct stands proudly amongst the hills near Uplyme on the Dorset-Devon border. It forms part of the now disused railway line which used to take people from Axminster to Lyme Regis.

I used to live very close to this impressive structure, so when I woke to find the parish enveloped in a low-lying mist I decided to see if the viaduct was visible. When I first arrived it was still hiding in the vapour, but as I waited it slowly began to reveal itself, along with the first rays of sunlight. The combination of mist and light created an enchanting scene.

All that’s missing is an old stream train chugging along the tracks.
