Built in 1836 to carry the London & Greenwich Railway, the 878 arches of this viaduct are a phenomenal feat of engineering, and have formed the northern backdrop to Bermondsey ever since.

A portion of the arches, which include fine stonework as well as brickwork, has already been destroyed to provide temporary access to the rail service area for London Bridge signal box.
