    . The bridge was closed to road traffic so that runners could cross it on 13 May 2007. I wish I'd known about that and would have run the 14.7 mile course

    Thanks Johanna,


    Now, keeping with the "theme". What transport route is this on? Roughly when was it built? What is its name? What river does it cross?

    Google goggles should identify this. It is south of me

    As somebody who enjoys the thrill of the hunt, and the learning experience it offers - I urge players to consider the Google / Goggles option as a search method of last resort.

    A generic search often leads to specific types of architecture and geography, which helps you narrow the field of potential targets. Cryptic clues including a play on words by the challenge poster, can also move game play along.

    My 2 cents for what it's worth and a whole lot more fun than plopping a picture into image matching software.

    Without using Google / Goggle, and instead using "south of me" being Bromley in Sir Richard's case - I'm going to say the "Horton Kirby Railway Viaduct."

    If so - it crosses the River Darent which cuts through the Darent Valley. It spans almost 400 feet over 10 support arches.

    The viaduct train crossing was activated in 1858 by the East Kent Railway. It enabled the railway to extend track from Strood to Bromley.

    It's the Ouse Valley Viaduct, also known as the Balcombe Viaduct, crosses the River Ouse. It's on the London-Brighton Railway Line, north of Haywards Heath and south of Balcombe. It is 450 m long and 29 m high. It opened in July 1841.

    I'll be offline for several hours and won't be able to monitor a challenge. Any iPF member who chooses, may post the next challenge.

    So I feel silly, I didn't know either existed. I think I'll still not use them, I learn so much from everyone finding these, plus I may know some.

    Where would you find this house? What is it's name? What was the original owner famous for?
