Chappel Viaduct, Essex Giclée Travel Poster
Giclée travel poster of the Chappel Viaduct, which crosses the River Colne just outside of Chappel, Essex. Built in 1849 to carry what was then the Stour Valley Railway (now known as the Gainsborough Line), the Chappel Viaduct is a truly impressive structure - the longest bridge in East Anglia (at 1,066 feet) and among the largest brick-built structures in England (consisting of around seven million bricks). The viaduct is held aloft by 32 arches, each of which has a hollow oval in the middle in order to save bricks.
Chappel itself is an idyllic small village in north Essex, sitting on the River Colne to the north-east of Colchester. The village's pub, the Swan Inn, can be seen in this illustration - while the local railway station, Chappel & Wakes Colne station, can be seen in one of our earliest illustrations.
This Essex illustration by artist Rob Wisdom is a high-quality Giclée travel poster. For our classic Chappel Viaduct art print, click here.
