12.11.65 accommodation arch
Railway viaduct. 1837-9 by John and Benjamin Green for Newcastle and North Shields
Railway Company; altered and width doubled 1869 for North-Eastern Railway Company.

laminated timber arches were removed).
T-section iron lattices between arches and railway bed girders, which are also
supported by masonry. Sloped copings to buttressed piers and abutments. Ashlar skew

Britain using the Wiebeking system of laminated wood; the present iron work closely
resembles the timber original.
