It carries the SVRSevern Valley RailwaySVRA:Severn Valley Railway AssociationSVRS:Severn Valley Railway Society over a small valley where a stream runs past Daniel's Mill. After closure of the section of line, BRBritish Rail or British Railways engineers intended to demolish the structure but were refused permission by the mill owner, a supporter of the railway.

In 1972 work began to refurbish the structure.[1] It was substantially rebuilt by 1975-76.[2].

The line immediately south of the viaduct was one of the many areas damaged in the 2007 storms. The Viaduct briefly featured in The Seven-Per-Cent Solution and The Chronicles Of Narnia films[3][4].
