NOTES: Holborn Viaduct links Holborn, via Holborn Circus, with Newgate Street in the City of London. It passes over Farringdon Street and the now subterranean River Fleet. It was built in 1863-1869 to designs by City Surveyor, William Heywood. The viaduct is adorned with four larger-than-life sized bronze allegorical figures: 'Commerce' and 'Agriculture', designed by Henry Bursill and executed by the firm Elkington, and 'Science' and 'Fine Art', executed by Farmer & Brindley.
