ABOVE: This photo shows the view looking towards Lewes Road and Sainsburys from the Bonchurch Cutting. The site has been cleared and will shortly play host to a residential block, appropriately named Viaduct Court.


The Road central to the picture is Hartington Road. The road bridge shown elsewhere in this chapter would have stood in the centre of the photo. St. Martin’s Primary School now stands on the cleared area beyond the tree, which was originally an embankment leading up to the eastern end of the viaduct.

 The abrupt end of the viaduct shown in this picture is not where it crossed Lewes Road as in previous pictures; Lewes Road is where the single large span is. The viaduct instead ends somewhere in the square formed by Melbourne Street in this picture.

 Note the roofline of Cox’s Pill Factory can be clearly seen next to the western end of the viaduct.
