Cynghordy Viaduct

Cynghordy Viaduct

One of the best ways to see mid Wales is to travel up from Swansea (or down from Shrewsbury) on the mid Wales railway. At Cynghordy you cross its most impressive feat of Victorian engineering. The viaduct sweeps across the valley and then a bit further up the line enters the Suger Loaf tunnel. The train usually slows at this point so that passengers can get a better view.
