CHESTER-LE-STREET SOUTH BURNS NZ 25 SE (West end, off) 4/32 Railway Viaduct over Chester Burn II

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 end piers.

Late C20 railings and cantilevered refuges are not of special interest. An important townscape feature.
