This aqueduct was built by the Midland railway to carry the waters from Force Gill into Dale Beck across the line below the southern entrance to Blea Moor Tunnel.
 
The aqueduct has recently been extensively refurbished by Railtrack. A concrete channel was originally planned but after an appropriate uproar, this sympathetic reconstruction was done.

The aqueduct is crossed on the footpath from Ribblehead viaduct to Whernside. It is about a mile and a half north of the viaduct. Just beyond the aqueduct is Blea Moor Tunnel, the longest on the line.
