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).

  • Superb - Just loved the steam train from Paignton and boat trip in Dartmouth. A real old fashioned journey, social distancing in place. Great scenery and v.friendly helpful crew.
  • Sunny days - The river cruise was a delight, such a fun and knowledgeable crew member giving the commentary, really is a must if visiting the area.
  • 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.
