GV II

Ornamental railway viaduct over River Mole. 1867, for London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway Company. Red brick with stone dressings. Four semi-circular arches on rectangular piers with curved cutwaters; the piers have imposts, the arches have arch-bands and keystones, and in each spandrel is a roundel of raised brick; crossing the heads of the arches tangentially is a moulded stone string-course on 3 courses of moulded brick, and above that a balustraded parapet with square brick banded balusters and moulded stone coping. The soffits of the arches are built in winding courses of brick. History: the ornamental treatment of the viaduct was demanded by Thomas Grissell, owner of most of the land which the railway crossed in this area, and himself a railway contractor (reference: Alan A. Jackson Dorking's Railways, 1988).
