Walk or cycle to Winchester's restored historic railway

Opened in 1891, the Hockley Viaduct was part of the Didcot to Southampton railway.

It closed to passengers in 1960, and to freight in 1966 as part of the national programme of closures proposed by Dr Richard Beeching.

The viaduct has now been repaired to begin a new life as part of the National Cycle Route Network Route 23, for walkers and cyclists to enjoy. Take the Viaduct Way and enjoy some scenic views from a lovingly restored landmark.

Look out for new interpretive artwork by Nicola Henshaw that reflects the history of Hockley Viaduct and marks the restoration of Viaduct Way using wood and other media.
