Ivybridge Station and Viaduct, Devon, c. 1890: A Glimpse into the Past This photograph presents a view of Ivybridge Station and the Ivybridge Viaduct in Devon, as they appeared around 1890. The image transports us back in time, offering a glimpse into the history of this picturesque South Devon Railway (SDR) location. The photograph showcases Brunel's old timber viaduct, an engineering marvel of its time, which stood proudly before its replacement in 1892. The viaduct, with its intricate lattice design and elegant arches, spans the River Erme and the surrounding landscape, providing a vital connection between Ivybridge and the rest of the railway network. Ivybridge Station, nestled at the foot of the viaduct, is a hive of activity. Steam trains, puffing out plumes of smoke, can be seen arriving and departing, while passengers, bundled up against the elements, go about their business. The station, with its red-brick buildings and tall chimneys, is a testament to the industrial spirit of the era. The lush greenery that surrounds the station and viaduct adds a sense of tranquility to the scene, providing a stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the railway activity. The River Erme, meandering through the landscape, adds to the idyllic setting, making Ivybridge a truly unique and captivating location. This photograph, taken in the late 1890s, offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, providing us with a valuable record of Ivybridge Station and Viaduct as they once were. It serves as a reminder of the rich railway heritage that exists in Devon and the importance of preserving and celebrating our industrial past.
