8/22 Tees Bridge
Railway viaduct carrying 2 tracks over River Tees. 1838-41, designed by
Henry Welsh for the Great North of England Railway Company. Sandstone
ashlar. About 100 metres long. Both faces similar. 4 segmental skew
arches on slightly battered piers which have projecting low rounded
cutwaters with shallow-domed tops. Sunk decorative panels with roll-moulded
borders on faces; chamfered impost bands. Narrower section of wall breaks
forward above each pier and has a similar sunk panel with dropped keystone.
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,
