The wrought-iron Bennerley Viaduct dates from 1877 and spans the Erewash Valley for 440m between Cotmanhay in Derbyshire and Awsworth in Nottinghamshire.

Bennerley Viaduct

The planning application has been submitted to Broxtowe and Erewash Borough Councils. The project is being led by the Friends of Bennerley Viaduct together with the structure's owner Railway Paths, which manages a portfolio of former railway land to provide routes suitable for cycling, walking, horseriding and wheelchair use.

The plans include carrying out critical structural repairs and creating access on and underneath the viaduct.
