over 2000 men and women moved to a remote valley in one of the most inhospitable parts of the country under the direction of the Midland Railway Company. Their job was to construct a viaduct across a huge glacial valley, and tunnel through a local hill known as Blea Moor. It took them five years and cost many of them their lives.
A hundred and fifty years later, the viaduct and tunnel still stand as a monument to Victorian engineering prowess.
