Bridge over River Gaunless. Dated 1830 for Stockton and Darlington railway by William Storey; date panel names builder James Wilson of Pontefract. Grit sandstone, coursed and squared with tooled ashlar dressings. Skew plan at angle of 270 with river. Low segmental arch with chamfered voussoirs and wider-arched fall roll-moulded dripstring; this merges with similar string at rail-bed level. Parapets sweep out to round piers and have chamfered coping continuous with top bands of piers, which have low ogee-domed coping. Moulded rectangular inscription panel on north face. One of the earliest surviving skew arches, which were becoming a necessary part of railway engineering.
