Camps Viaduct

The Camps Viaduct was built in 1885 and once carried a single-track mineral railway line over both the River Almond and the Canal Feeder. The railway was known as the Camps Branch of the North British Railway and served the oil works at Pumpherston and Uphall. Located quarter-mile (0.4 km) north of East Calder in West Lothian, it comprises nine segmental brick arches and is 23m in height. The railway line closed in 1956 but the viaduct remains open to walkers, cyclists and horse riders, providing a link between East Calder, Pumpherston and Uphall Station. It lies within the Almondell and Calderwood Country Park.
