By far the highlight on the Brighton line, the viaduct opens up a lovely vista of the Sussex Low Weald on the approach to Haywards Heath. I always make sure I look out of the window. Better still is to arrive on foot, perhaps leaving...More

So impressed at this Viaduct - and with its incredible engineering. The underneath symmetry is remarkable and a photo of it essential. Sympathetically restored in places. Only takes a few minutes ealk from the road - highly recommended.

Victorian viaduct to die for! The level of skill and labour required to construct this route over The river Ouse. Consider the view from the road, the detail, the quality of the brickwork And remember this was constructed in the early Victorian era.

Stumbled across this by chance, as sat nav took us via a spurious route to Haywards Heath. Short walk across field from parking layby via signed footpath. Well worth a 20 delay to your journey.

You need stout boots to walk across fields and through thicket - carry a small step ladder. The best effects are at dask/dawn when you can get contrasting light patterns. End to End shots through the supports is a popular shot

An impressive brick structure with very easy access from the road. Well worth a quick detour if passing close by. Great photos especially through the centre of the arches.

Travelled over this many times but it is such a striking structure in the West Sussex countryside and is worth observing by any means.

iconic railway viaduct showing signs of deterioration but a tribute to the builders in the early 19th century.hope it will meet the needs of modern railway stock

Not easy... you would really need a taxi out there. It is actually closer to Balcombe station, and if you are keen walkers you could work out a good route from there that took in the viaduct.
