Located south of the town of Balcombe in West Sussex, the Ouse Valley viaduct crosses the River Ouse. The viaduct is 450 metres long, 29 metres tall and contains 37 supports, each containing a central arch. It is estimated that over 11 million bricks were used in the construction of the viaduct. The structure, opened in 1941, was a crucial part of the line that still connects London with the seaside resort city of Brighton. Since 1983 the Ouse Valley viaduct had been a Grade II* listed structure, affording it a level of protection and ensuring that it will never be torn down.
These rhubarb plants doing well (despite the current slug attack - hopefully nematodes applied last night start working ASAP 🤦🏼♀️😳🐌) I planted these from seeds last year and two pictured here have been planted in my rhubarb bed. Unfortunately, the majority of my young plants were lost back in very early Spring due to vine weevil 😭 After I realised what the problem was it was too late and lost over 30 Young rhubarb plants. I was gutted. The plants that were still alive I removed them from the pots, washed the roots in buckets and hand removed the grubs and replanted in clean pots and compost before adding Nemasys nematodes vine weevil killer. These plants recovered and are now doing well. Of the 30+ young rhubarb plants I had, only about 5 survived after the vine weevil attack. Not everything goes to plan in the garden. Don’t give up and there’s always a second chance 💚🌱.
