There is a beautiful old viaduct in Winchester – apparently the longest brick structure in Hampshire. I have felt a certain affinity with this viaduct since my early childhood; i used to pass it at least once a month, and i even remember dreaming about it in my youth.
It has suddenly been brought to my attention because it has been neglected and is possibly even in danger of being demolished. Suddenly i feel a huge regret that i never went to see it up close, that i never walked across it when i had the chance. I dont think you even can walk on it now. But there is a group called Friends of Hockley Viaduct who met earlier this week to raise money to have it repaired and restored! YAY!!
So now i want to get involved! I am poking the internet to see what i can do to help, but so far its not being very forthcoming.
