Dog pack attacks again

"I thought you'd know"
Fenton to Charles

 

After dining on roasted rabbit, Charles and Fenton are preparing to leave the shelter of the viaduct hut when dogs attack them from both front and back charging at them from inside the railway tunnel and, here, from along the length of the viaduct.

Description: This shot of the top of the viaduct is taken from near the mouth of the railway tunnel, looking out across the length of the viaduct.

Where is it?: The viaduct top is accessible from the signed footpath leading down from Monsal Head, and also via a steep pathway from the valley floor. It can also be reached along the footpath adjacent to the barn in which Charles is discovered by the young girl.

Where's the best vantage point?: All of the sequences on the viaduct top are quickly identifiable, and the camera positions from the original shoot can easily be replicated.

What about access?: The viaduct is open to the public and there are no photographic restrictions. However, each of the possible routes to the viaduct top involves steep climbs, and the pathways need to be traversed with care.

Anything else?: Of all the locations in Monsal Dale, the top of the viaduct is the most popular with tourists for obvious reasons. The viaduct is at its emptiest during weekdays, in the early morning and early evening, and "out of season".
