The word viaduct derivies from the Latin via (way) and ductus (to lead). A viaduct is a type of long bridge either built as a series of tall towers linked by bridge spans or made by placing a continuous track upon supporting arches. Caerphilly County had a good share of viaducts, most of which have now disappeared.
