Aquaduct

Some pictures of the rosa crossing the 1000 foot Cachor Pont Canal (aquaduct) over the river Tarn between Moissac & Castelsarasin, made of grey stone of Quercy & pink brick of Toulouse, with 13 arches the pont canal managed to survive a huge storm which brought down the neighbouring railway bridge in 1930, they widened the towpath to put a railway line on the Pont canal in order to keep the line running during construction of a new bridge, a great tribute to the strength of the bridge built in 1845.
