Description

Grainger and Miller, circa 1840. Multi-span railway viaduct
with wildest span of 40 metres at centre. Bull-faced, coursed
sandstone with ashlar dressings. Battered bases to piers.
Segmental archways with string courses at impost level. Bold,
panelled pylons flanking central arch, with recessed panels,
diminishing breadth and raised blocking course in Egyptian
manner, breaking the parapet. Pronounced, pulvinated string
course below ashlar coped parapet.

Statement of Interest

Remarkable design both technically and in its simple grandeur. The third of four bridges spanning the dene in close succession, and entering Berwickshire. Previously listed twice as it spans two council areas (East Lothian and Scottish Borders) (2019), see 300030355.
