Railway Viaduct approx. 15 metres
west of road bridge over River Mole
Ornamental railway viaduct over River Mole. 1867, for London, Brighton, and
South Coast Railway Company. Red brick with stone dressings. Four semi-circular
arches on rectangular piers with curved cutwaters; the piers have imposts, the
arches have arch-bands and keystones, and in each spandrel is a roundel of
raised brick; crossing the heads of the arches tangentially is a moulded stone
string-course on 3 courses of moulded brick, and above that a balustraded
parapet with square brick banded balusters and moulded stone coping. The soffits
of the arches are built in winding courses of brick. History: the ornamental
treatment of the viaduct was demanded by Thomas Grissell, owner of most of
the land which the railway crossed in this area, and himself a railway contractor
(reference: Alan A. Jackson Dorking's Railways, 1988).
