Replaced by a new stone viaduct on 24 August 1884.

It is just possible to see on the left of the picture one of Brunels pillars (or stumps) still standing. It is covered heavily in growth and is not a protected monument. More of Brunel's stumps can bee seen alongside the Coombe St Stephens Viaduct and the St. Austell Viaduct.
