Mick; go on your bike and answer:-
Is the third from left viaduct support in Shevington or Gathurst?
i.e. on which side of the River Douglas is it.

It will be on the Shevy side Ernest, if you look at the fence on the viaduct where it is solid is over the railway line, this is to stop anything that is going to go over the edge falling on the railway line.

Is the large white building near the top right corner of the image part of Heinz at Kitt Green?

So that means, according to Google Earth, that the buildings in the background are Shevington and Standish.

Great photo, Mick. Lovely refreshing angle for a local site.
