The Anonymous Widower

Railway Arches On The Greenwich Line

Wikipedia says this about the railway built between London and Greenwich Railway.

The railway was opened in London between 1836 and 1838. It was the first steam railway in the capital, the first to be built specifically for passengers, and the first elevated railway.

As it’s a line on a viaduct it has lots of arches.

And as the picture shows, many are good ones and seem to be being used profitably.

As I said in the piece on the Greenwich Pumping Station, the area between the blue bridge and the Pumping Station at Greenwich could become a quality leisure area, with waterside cafes and shops, overlooked by a hopefully-restored  Deptford Creek Lift Bridge.
