Penallt Viaduct is an iron bridge constructed in 1875-6, that formerly carried the Wye Valley Railway over the River Wye; the river at this location forms the border between England (Gloucestershire) and Wales (Monmouthshire). It was located between Redbrook on Wye and Penallt Halt stations; passenger services ceased on the railway in 1959. The viaduct is still open and now carries a public footpath over the Wye; it connects the villages of Redbrook with Penallt.
