Tassagh Railway Viaduct



Map Reference: H861383 (2861, 3383)



This eleven-arch viaduct was built at the beginning of the 20th century for the Armagh to Castleblaney railway line. It has concrete piers with brick facings on each of the arches and brick vaulting. It was one of the last great railway structures to be built before the modern era. Passenger services were withdrawn in 1932 and the line closed in 1957. Just to the west of the viaduct is a large beetling mill.
