4/32 Railway Viaduct
over Chester Burn
Railway viaduct carrying 2 tracks over Chester Burn. 1868 for the North-
Eastern Railway Company. Light-red engineering brick in English bond; stone
plinths and parapet band.
Tall, c.230-metre long viaduct. 11 elliptical arches, in 7 rows of header
bond, on thin slightly-battered piers with tall rock-faced plinths; arches
partly refaced on west. Moulded band at track level. Low parapet with paired
Late C20 railings and cantilevered refuges are not of special interest. An
important townscape feature.
