Kielder Viaduct
Kielder Viaduct
Constructed in 1862 to carry the Border Counties railway (Hexham to Riccarton Junction); the line was eventually closed by Beeching. The viaduct is remarkable in that is built "on the skew" which called for special shaping of all the individual pieces of stone used in construction.
