Hookhills viaduct maintenance

5th August 2021

We had Peninsula Access track side during the week carrying out high level vegetation management on our viaduct. Removing and treating the vegetation stops the root from destroying the mortar holding the stones together thus extending the life of the viaduct. The pictures are of them working on Hookhills Viaduct at a height of 85ft (25m).

  • Sights and smells - Cannot beat the smell and sound of a steam locomotive, a very scenic ride firstly along the beach, then along the river Dart. A couple of hours in Dartmouth then all aboard for trip back.
  • A thoroughly enjoyable day out - I was very impressed with the organisation, it was always very clear where we were supposed to go and what time we were supposed to be somewhere - would happily do it again.
  • Atmospheric steam train - We took the steam train from Paignton to Kingswear and then the ferry to Dartmouth (inc in the ticket). It was a trip back in time and most enjoyable, despite the very rainy weather! Good value for money.
