Pathhead Viaduct

Recent Photo

Thank you to Bob Henderson, Burdiehouse Edinburgh for sending me this recent photo that he took of Pathhead Viaduct, Midlothian.

Bob's reason for sending this photo was part of an investigation to discover whether or not the viaduct seen in the background of this early group photograph by James Pike might have been Pathhead Viaduct.

Bob concluded:

Pathhead? - No

"The arches in the large photo at the top of this page are very distinctly different from those in this photo by James Pike:

So, the viaduct in James Pike's photo is not at Pathhead."
