671-1/5/322 Waverley Viaduct, west of the former
Also known as: Waverly Viaduct Newtown.
Disused railway viaduct for the former Carlisle to Edinburgh
line. 1861 for the North British Railway Company. Quarry-faced
red sandstone blocks with brick arches.
Double-track width of 6 spans crossing the River Eden on a
slight curve. Each arch is segmental on rounded piers with
quarry-faced voussoirs. Arch soffits are of brick. Moulded
string course and solid parapet with chamfered coping; parts
of the parapet have stones missing through vandalism.
Concern was expressed in the Carlisle Journal 15 January 1861
that the wooden bridge, constructed to carry a tramway for the
building of this bridge, would be damaged by ice floes on the
river. The line was completed in April 1862. Waverley Viaduct
is partly in Kingmoor CP. In Peter Brook (1990) this is called
the Canal Viaduct.
(Carlisle Journal: 15 January 1861; Carlisle Journal: 1 April
1862; Brook, Peter: Calling Carlisle Control: 1990-: P.80-81).
