One of my favourite constructions and photographic subject – The Balcombe Ouse Valley Railway Viaduct.
Built in 1841, the Ouse Valley Viaduct (also called Balcombe Viaduct) over the River Ouse on the London-Brighton Railway Line north of Haywards Heath and south of Balcombe is 1,475 feet (450 m) long.

At one point I was sitting up on the curved arch when a herd of deer ran though, stopping just below me.
Suddenly I was surrounded by all these beautiful creatures with their young and they didn’t know I was there.
Unfortunately my camera was also on the ground below me so I couldn’t get a picture..
after about half a minute they all ran off again.  Magical moment at Balcombe.
