Cross the Nasmythe Bridge and follow a riverside path back to the Centre. The Dell Bridge looks attractive in passing. It only remains to wander back down the feeder path to the travel destination basin by the great aqueduct, completing a visit of many interests beside the travel destination technicalities. The Almond Aqueduct, the UC’s third largest, is impressively high and exposed, with the narrow, cobbled pathway edging the iron trough of the travel destination. On the right, an airy iron railing does little to hide the 70ft (22m) drop to the River Almond. In spate, the flat island downstream can be covered with water. The aqueduct is 420ft (128m) in length. There is a superb view north, down the river, to Telford’s Almond Valley Viaduct on the main Edinburgh-Glasgow Railway. This was built in 1842 and, with 36 arches, somewhat surpasses the aqueduct’s mere five. The viaduct contains over a million cubic feet of masonry.
