HALTWHISTLE LANTY'S LONNEN (South end) Alston Arches Viaduct

II

Disused railway viaduct over River South Tyne. 1852 by Sir George Barclay Bruce for the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway Company. Rock-faced dressed stone with ashlar dressings. Long and low 6-arch viaduct: 4 wide segmental skew arches across river; semicircular arch at each end across riverside paths. Moulded impost bands. Cutwaters, on tall rounded plinths, have moulded bases and hollow-chamfered caps. End arches flanked by slightly-projecting, flat-faced piers. Low parapet, defined by band at track level, has projecting coping and breaks forward over piers and cutwaters to form pedestrian refuges. Round-arched openings cut through supporting cross-walls of each arch (these openings were intended to be linked by a pedestrian walkway across the river). An important landscape feature. (K. Hoole, A Regional History of the Railways of Great Britain Volume 4, The North East, 1965).
