Officially "Bridge no 35", carrying railway (now operated by Peak Rail) over River Derwent. No trace of FB. Top section of pillar at SE end of SW side of viaduct removed or cut back either during or before construction of walkway on SW side of bridge. BM 94.48m on LandLine at this location does not relate to the FB, but to a cut BM - in any case nothing found.
