577-1/26/565 New England Viaduct


Railway bridge. Foundation stone laid 1839. Yellow brick set
in English bond with dressings of stone on the east and west
faces, the rest of red brick in English bond.
The bridge is in the form of a triumphal arch with a central
round-arched opening for the road flanked by narrower and
lower pedestrian arches. An order is superimposed on these
arches on either side: Doric pilasters with base of stone,
shaft of brick, capital of stone, entablature of stone
including a frieze of brick; in relation to this order, the
arches have a stone springing band running back through the
depth of the arch, a brick archivolt and stone keystone. The
cornice is missing on the western side, and there is some
additional iron work on the eastern side; parapet rebuilt on
both sides.
The bridge is flanked on the eastern side by yellow brick
returns and then by retaining walls in yellow brick coped with
stone which run down to corniced piers.
The viaduct was part of the first railway line into Brighton,
and was widened on the west side in the 1860s.
