Railway viaduct carrying 2 tracks over River Tees. 1838-41, designed by
Henry Welsh for the Great North of England Railway Company. Sandstone

Arch tunnels, voussoirs and spandrels have chamfered rustication. Flat-
coped horizontal parapet, defined by 2 stepped bands at track level, breaks
forward above piers to form rectangular-plan pedestrian refuges, some now
destroyed. Parapet end piers have low pyramidal caps. Late C20 parapet
railings. Rendered embankment-retaining walls. Partly in the Civil Parish
of Hurworth. K Hoole, A Regional History of the Railways of Great Britian,
