Dinting Viaduct

Dinting Viaduct is a 19th-century railway viaduct in Glossopdale in Derbyshire, that carries the Glossop Line over a valley at the village of Dinting. It crosses the A57 road between Manchester and Sheffield. First opened in 1844 as part of the original Woodhead Line by the Sheffield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Manchester Railway, the viaduct has been modified a number of times, most notably by the addition of seven brick strengthening piers in 1918–20; the viaduct comprises three sections: starting from the south end, there is a series of seven stone arches, each 50 feet wide. The central section consists of five openings. A further four stone arches take the railway to the northerly junction with the branch to Hadfield and into Dinting station, it is of similar design to the shorter Broadbottom Viaduct about 1.5 mi west down the same line, which crosses the River Etherow at Broadbottom. Dinting is much the larger of two similar viaducts on the line, both of which are significant for their height.

It has four main spans, each of four ribs, flanked by eleven brick-built, semi-circular approach arches, each with a fifty-foot span—four at one end and seven at the other. Seven intermediate supporting piers were added in 1919, constructed of blue brick and irregularly spaced to avoid the road and river beneath, thus resulting in the loss of the viaduct's symmetry; this alteration was criticised by the architectural writer Nikolaus Pevsner. The modern-day Glossop branch line opened as the Woodhead Line in December 1845, which linked Sheffield to Manchester, it was closed in 1981 leaving only the Manchester to Glossop/Hadfield section still in operation. The viaduct over the River Etherow at Broadbottom had been completed in December 1842, extending train services to Broadbottom, with the contract for the Dinting viaduct being let in June that year. In August 1844 the bridge was opened allowing trains to reach Glossop from Manchester; the original construction of the two bridges used laminated timber arches.

By 1856, the level of rail traffic and the weight of the trains had increased so much that the existing timber viaducts were considered inadequate, in 1859 wrought-iron girders were installed to replace the timber arches. By early the following year, this work had been completed on both bridges. Over the next 60 years, the level of traffic increased yet further due to the heightened use of coal trains, so that the 1859 works became insufficient to deal with the weight. Seven brick strengthening piers were inserted during the years 1918–20, again at Broadbottom, leaving the irregular pattern of piers seen today. Major work was carried out in the 1950s in preparation for the electrification of the line; the first electric train travelled over in 1954. In 2012–13, an extensive refurbishment was undertaken by Network Rail, the viaduct's maintainer, including strengthening the girders, installing new bearings and repairs to the steel and masonry, it was repainted olive green. The scheme cost £6.4 million.

On the night of 18 September 1855, a passenger train was halted on the viaduct to a let a returning wakes week excursion train clear Dinting station just ahead. The night was "exceedingly dark", causing some of the passengers to mistakenly think they had arrived at the station platform. From one carriage, three people left the train, stepping onto the low parapet of the viaduct, fell to their deaths. After a few minutes, the viaduct night watchman found the three of them lying side by side on the grass in the valley. Two had been killed, the third died within an hour; the following day, an inquest was opened at the Plough Inn, where the deceased were confirmed to be Jane Hadfield, John Healey and Thomas Priestnall. It returned a verdict of accidental death and recommended the railway company put up a fence on the parapet of the viaduct to prevent similar accidents, to move the signal closer to Manchester so that passenger trains cannot stop on the viaduct.

Tabula clesiana

The Tabula clesiana is a bronze plate size cm. 49.9 x 37.8 x 0.61, discovered in 1869 at Campi Neri near Cles in Trentino, northern Italy. It contains the edict of the Caesar Claudius of 46 AD which granted the Roman citizenship to the Alpine peoples of the Anauni and Tulliasses; the Tabula is conserved at the Castello del Buonconsiglio Museum in Trento. The Tabula is an important evidence of the rapid assimilation by the Roman world of the Alpine peoples of farmers-hunters but from the point of view of the Roman law the first evidence of the introduction of delatores in the fiscal controversy; the name of the Bergaleos has been connected with the name of Val Bregaglia. "During the consulship of Marcus Junius Silanus and Quintus Sulpicius Camerinus, on the Ides of March, in Baia, in the judgment hall, it was affixed the edict of Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, transcribed below. Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, Pontifex Maximus, during his sixth tribunate, after his eleventh acclamation as Emperor, father of the country, appointed consul for the fourth time, says: Because, among the oldest disputes in progress since the time of my uncle Tiberius Caesar, for resolution of which - in my memory, only those that existed between Comensi and Bergalei - he had sent Pinariius Apollinaris, since he, as a first step for the stubborn absence of my uncle also under the principality of Gaius, he neglected - not a fool - to produce a report on what was bot required.

As for the condition of Anauni, of Sinduni and Tulliassi, a portion of which it is said that the complaint has found to be attributed to the Tridentini, some attributed, although I realize that this category of people has not based their Roman citizenship on a sufficiently well-founded source, since it is said that they have been owned for a long period of use, that you are so fused with Tridentini by not being able to be separated without serious damage to the beautiful town hall, it allows for my claim they continue to be in legal status who they thought they had, the more so because several of their condition is said to pay service in my judgment hall, some have been officers of the troops, that some people included in decurie in Rome will do the judges. Their agreement this benefit, with the result that they have entered into any store or any legal proceedings have taken as if they were Roman citizens, or among themselves, or with Tridentini or other, I order, ratified.

George Hudson

George Hudson was an English railway financier and politician who, because he controlled a significant part of the railway network in the 1840s, became known as "The Railway King"—a title conferred on him by Sydney Smith in 1844. Hudson played a significant role in linking London to Edinburgh by rail, carrying out the first major merging of railway companies, developing his hometown of York into a major railway junction, represented Sunderland in the House of Commons. Hudson's success was built on dubious financial practices and he paid shareholders out of capital rather than money the company had earned. In 1849, a series of enquiries launched by the railways he was chairman of, exposed his methods, although many leading the enquiries had benefited and approved of Hudson's methods when it suited them. Hudson fell a long way, becoming bankrupt, after losing his Sunderland seat he was forced to live abroad to avoid arrest for debt, returning only when imprisonment for debt was abolished in 1870.

Hudson's name is associated with financial wrongdoing, although others were at least guilty of similar practices. He never named any of his co-conspirators, although many of them turned their backs on him when the bubble burst. George Hudson was born in Howsham, about 12 miles from York, to parents John and Elizabeth Hudson on 10 March 1800, his mother died at the age of 38 when George was his father two years later. He was brought up by older brothers William and John and after a cursory education he left Howsham at age 15. Beaumont suggests that this may have been the result of the slump affecting agriculture in 1815, but there was a payment of 12 shillings and 6 pence recorded in the Howsham poor book as being “received of George Hudson for bastardry”. Hudson was apprenticed to a firm of drapers in College Street, York, he finished his apprenticeship in 1820, was taken on as a tradesman, given a share in the business early in 1821. On 17 July that year he married Nicholson's daughter Elizabeth.

When Bell retired, the firm became Hudson. By 1827 the company was indeed the largest business, in York. In 1827, his great-uncle Matthew Botrill fell ill and Hudson attended at his bedside. In thanks for this, the old man made a will leaving him his fortune of £30,000. In years when exiled in France, Hudson acknowledged "it was the worst thing that could have happened to me, it let me into the railways and all my misfortunes since". Hudson became a prominent member of the York Board of Health and when cholera visited the city in 1832 Hudson distinguished himself as a spirited public servant visiting the sick and reporting on their welfare.”From being a Methodist and a Dissenter, Hudson changed his allegiance to become a High Church Tory and became treasurer of the York Conservative Party in 1832. He supported the unsuccessful candidature of John Henry Lowther in the general election of 1832 and again in an 1833 bye-election. Although York was a Whig city the influence Hudson had on the campaigns was being noticed.

In 1833 it became possible for joint stock country banks to conduct their business in the City of London and he took a leading part in the establishment of the York Union Banking Company with its agent in the city being George Carr Glyn. In 1833 York businessmen formed a railway committee; the initial idea of this was to link York to Leeds to enable the city to enjoy cheaper coal and emulate the industrial success being enjoyed by Leeds and other West Yorkshire towns. Hudson was treasurer of this group and subsequently subscribed for 500 shares becoming the largest shareholder, they retained John Rennie to survey the line and Hudson accompanied him, learning the practicalities of railway construction and of dealing with landowners. In spite of the success of the locomotive powered Liverpool and Manchester Railway on the other side of the Pennines, Rennie produced plans for a horse-drawn line, matters fell into abeyance. In the summer of 1834 Hudson met George Stephenson by chance in Whitby and they became friends and business associates.

He learnt of Stephenson's dream of a railway from London, using a junction of the London and Birmingham Railway at Rugby, through Derby and Leeds to Newcastle – but bypassing York. In fact, since 1833, plans had been advanced for three lines – the Midland Counties Railway from Rugby to Derby, the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway from Hampton in Arden just outside Birmingham to Derby, the North Midland Railway from there to Leeds. In 1835 the York railway committee became the York and North Midland Railway and at Hudson's suggestion the new line would join the North Midland at Normanton a few miles south-east of Leeds; the YNMR received its Act of Parliament on 21 June 1836. and at its first official meeting Hudson was elected Chairman with other officers including James Meek, James Richardson and Richard Nicholson. At this time there was another railway being planned which would link York to Darlington called the Great North of England Railway, its promoters hoped that it would be part of an East Coast route to Scotland and whilst favouring Leeds and York they chose York as their southernmost destination although Hudson had little to do with this decision.

Work started on the YNMR line in April 1837 with a new station being built in York. In April – before full opening – Hudson declared a dividend of one guinea per share which, when questioned he confirmed had been paid out of the companies' capital; some objected but both Meek and Joseph Rowntree defended the move although in years the latter would be foremost amongst Hudson's critics.
