Painting, oil on canvas, The London Road Viaduct on the Brighton, Lewes and Hastings Line, by J W Carmichael, 1848. Depicts the brick railway viaduct curving across the valley of the River Wellesbourne. A train hauled by a steam locomotive is crossing the viaduct, leaving a plume of white smoke. In the foreground are cut down trees, and two women talking beside a stone wall. There is a drover with cattle on the road in the valley beneath the viaduct, and on the hills at either side and in the distance there are three windmills. The town of Brighton is visible in the distance, between the arches of the bridge. Signed by the artist at bottom right. Framed and glazed.
