15/123 Corby Viaduct


Viaduct over Corby Beck (not to be confused with Corby Bridge further west)
1830-4, by Francis Giles, for the Newcastle & Carlisle Railway Company. Red
sandstone. 7 arches of 13 metre spans on 6 piers, giving a height of 23 metres
and 160 metres long. Similar architectural details as Corby Bridge. Henry
Howard used this viaduct as an entrance gate to Corby Castle, having his coat of
arms carved above the central arch of both faces and building a road through the
valley beside Corby Beck. An early and important railway structure, forming an
impressive landscape feature.
