Whalley Arches, the longest brick viaduct in Lancashire and the view from my house when I lived in Whalley. It's span of 48 arches crosses the river Calder and the railway carries the Ribble Valley Line to Clitheroe and beyond.
I found the drawing while I was looking for something else and felt inspired to Batik a new picture - a real bit of nostalgia for me. I originally photographed the double header crossing the viaduct way back in the 80s.
