5344 Abutments and retain-
ing walls to road
NY 96 SW 3/400 bridge over line to
west and south of
Hexham Railway Station


Bridge abutments to roadbridge over the Newcastle-Carlisle railway line, and
retaining walls supporting the 3 raised roads leading to the bridge. 1847, at the
behest of the local Turnpike Trust. Coursed sandstone rubble with rockfaced piers
at intervals; these run up over a rockfaced-and-margined band at roadbed level and
continue as dressed-stone buttresses to end in flattened-pyramidal tops just above
the level of the slightly-chamfered parapet coping. The bridge abutments have
projecting offset dressed-stone buttresses. Bridge replaced in modern riveted
steel. An arched opening through the south-western arm gives access to open land
at west; and a cart ramp leads from northern arm into fields to north-west.
