A towering stone viaduct built to carry the now-defunct Harrogate-Ripon railway line over the River Nidd is one of the highlights of a visit to Bilton Beck and Rudding Bottoms. On a walk along the beautiful riverside path you will discover there are lots of birds to see too, including dippers, grey wagtails and kingfishers.
