Sankey Viaduct 1979

Resource Type: Image | Posted on 28th October 2011 by Liam Physick

One of the images donated to Metal by Eric Shenton. Here we see the Sankey Viaduct as it appeared in 1979. Like Edge Hill and the Moorish Arch site but unlike Rainhill, it has fallen into neglect: it is badly in need of new paint and the area surrounding it is overgrown. In the background we see a factory that has fallen silent: a reminder of how the industrial society that drove the expansion of the railways has disappeared
