NZ 35SW HOUGHTON-LE-SPRING COX GREEN ROAD (north side) Penshaw. 4/27 Accommodation arch in rail- way embankment north of Low Lambton Farm G.V. II

Accommodation arch in embankment for Victoria Railway Bridge. Between 1835 and 1838; widened c.1850. Ashlar and brick. Ashlar retaining walls in south embankment flank skew arch of ashlar in western part, brick arch in eastern part. Ashlar retaining walls over arches. Western arch has bracketed keystone on band; eastern arch plain. Historical note : the arches allowed the Lumley waggonway through the embankment to Low Lambton Staiths; the widening probably took place to allow an easier curve to the bridge.
