From Cornwall Heritage Trust:
Cornwall Heritage Trust has launched an appeal to save the magnificent Treffry Viaduct towering so majestically over the beautiful Luxulyan Valley Country Park.
The viaduct is a masterpiece of 19th century Cornish engineering, having been built to carry both a horse-drawn tramway across the valley and also water in an aqueduct channel constructed below the tramway deck. However, for many years now, the viaduct has leaked water from the aqueduct channel.
The work needed to save the viaduct is estimated at £1.7m and the Cornwall Heritage Trust is urgently appealing for donations to their Treffry Viaduct Repair Fund and you can now donate online.
