Channel for a waterwheel?
Not this time....the key is locating Little Mill, and like I say those arent ordinary castings of a bit of rough concrete. They are very precise, and to an exacting specification. They have to be, in the location at little mill which they are due to be fixed.

Getting warmer, have you found little mill?.....havent tried it in duck duck go but it would be a particularly dangerous cycle path which used the railway at Little Mill :-D

There is only one feature of any note at Little Mill :-D

Maybe the Trivia Investigation Team can help me with this
Where is this viaduct ?
Where is this viaduct ?
Seeing as the question setter is from Sussex, the first candidate for me would be the Ouse Valley Viaduct.

Its a pretty fuzzy appearance on the video, and a characteristic of the Ouse Valley Viaduct is the "hole In the Middle of the Pillars so I dont expect the first guess is right, although the detail on the video is poor, and may be shot from an angle whereby the "holes" are hidden.

If nothing else might be an excuse to post up photos of many arched viaducts.

My best best is the digswell viaduct. I reckon the viaduct in the film has over 30 arches. That doesnt leave too many.

I reckon the viaduct in the vid has at least 30 arches, they are tall and uniform, and pretty clear of trees/bushes etc

That one is also quite convenient for the video crew popping up from the smoke to shoot the footage!

I doubt they would head off to ribblehead but in the course of the consideration I stumbled across a very nice image on wiki

I know the Digswell viaduct very well Neil and I do not recognise the dry stone banks pictured at the end of the viaduct in the video. I think it is more likely to be in the Derbyshire/Yorkshire area!! Also Digswell has electric cable support gantrys which I could not see on the video. :) How about the Welland Viaduct which I posted as a wheresthisthen ? Or maybe Penistone in S Yorks? :-D

Has every chance to be Mick. I video-ed the video with my camera and played the 2 of 3 seconds it appears frame by frame. We are working with source material which is poorly defined. Not sure if the electric gantries with the psychadelic fill in background would show up anyway. Definitely a viaduct with tall arches, and like digswell anf welland at least 20 full clear spans ie no trees/or other such gubbins to get in the way of the view.

There is a 32 multi arch viaduct in Essex, Chappel Viaduct which I also had a look at but a bit too much in the way I think.
