Talking of fancy brickwork... I had an outing to the Viaduct yesterday afternoon.
The curious thing about the Viaduct is that it's actually made of solid concrete with a brick facing. Built in the 1880s, it is one of the very first poured concrete structures. Unless its physical decline is halted soon (talk about yer wabi sabi), it will have to be demolished. Every time I return a new chunk of parapet is lying in the grass.
