Nine Arches Viaduct on the Derwent Walk
The Derwent Walk is a multi-user path for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders which follows the line of the old railway between Consett and the Tyne at Swalwell. It forms part of National Cycle Network route 14 which pursues a zigzag course across county Durham from Darlington to Hartlepool, Durham, Consett and Swalwell. It offers cyclists following the C2C an alternative route to finish at the sea at Tynemouth.

Downstream from Rowland's Gill village the path enters a linear country park known as Derwent Walk Country Park and Derwenthaugh Country Park. Here it crosses the 150 metre long Nine Arches Viaduct, the construction of which was necessitated by the refusal of the Earl of Strathmore to let the railway pass through the Gibside Estate.
