Ribblehead Heritage Tours - Free guided tours (on foot) of the Ribblehead Viaduct site.

The Ribblehead Viaduct is the highlight of the route with its magnificent 24 arches spanning Batty Moss over 100 feet below. Join the Ribblehead Heritage Tours to look at the archaeological sites and the history of the Viaduct. Hear how the navvies lived and built this tremendous structure with assistance from steam cranes and muscle power. Places of interest that will be visited are the site of the Batty Green Shanty Town including the site of the hospital, the narrow-gauge tramway, the maintenance shed for the steam locomotives, the brickworks, lime kilns, the stone sorting area and the Viaduct itself.
