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

cornice is missing on the western side, and there is some
additional iron work on the eastern side; parapet rebuilt on
The bridge is flanked on the eastern side by yellow brick

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.
