An original landscape watercolour featuring Knaresborough Viaduct, situated in the beautiful market town of Knaresborough in North Yorkshire, England. This quaint market town famous for Mother Shiptons Cave is just a few miles from Harrogate. The viaduct was built in 1848 to carry the Harrogate railway line over the River Nidd. Sam captures this iconic railway bridge beautifully, surrounded by town houses, nestled in Autumn trees with their gold and bronze leaves. This Yorkshire watercolour has been signed by the artist.
