High quality greeting card of Chappel, a village in the Borough of Colchester, Essex. Chappel sits on the  River Colne, which it has bridged since at least the 12th century, and is home to a 13th century pub, two churches, and the East Anglian Railway Museum.

Chappel is best known, however, for the Chappel Viaduct - depicted in this illustration. Built from 1847 to 1849, the Chappel Viaduct carries the Gainsborough Line, which links nearby Marks Tey to Sudbury, Suffolk; previously it has continued as far as Cambridgeshire. The viaduct, at a length of 1060 feet, is the longest bridge in East Anglia, and one of the largest brick-built structures in the country - smaller only than Battersea Power Station.

This Essex illustration by artist Rob Wisdom is a high-quality greeting card. For our Giclée art print of the Chappel Viaduct, click here.
