River Nidd (formerly listed
as The Railway Viaduct)
Viaduct. 1851. Engineer Thomas Grainger for the Leeds and Thirsk Railway Gritstone.
Approximately 100 metres long and 30 metres high, carrying 2 tracks on 4
arches. 2 central round arches span the river, the 2 flanking arches span
the Long Walk (south bank) and Waterside (north bank). Round cut-waters
carried up as buttresses with projecting bands and small half-towers at top.
Embattled parapet. Work on the viaduct was begun in 1847, but the bridge
collapsed in 1848. The replacement cost £9,803 to construct.
