Taff's Well - 'Walnut Tree Viaduct totem on River Taff'

Medium: Oil on Canvas          Ref: KWA01/OOC 

On original oil on canvas painting showing the sentinel-like brick totem which is a lasting remnant of the famous and amazing 'Walnut Tree Viaduct', built in 1901 and demolished in 1969. This 'totem' is an ever-present symbol and a tangible reminder of the village's industrial past. The pillar stands vigil on the river Taff and is the only full-size pillar left of the viaduct that once spanned the Taff Gorge (there is one other short pillar to its west).

The river Taff is ancient and has been passing through his narrow entrance to the Taff Vale for millennia, the pillar only stood in loyal service for 68 years but today, it remains a lonely silent witness to an impressive feat of engineering which laid its mark on the village of Taff's Well.
