Knaresborough viaduct
Grade II* Listed the railway viaduct was completed by Thomas Grainger in 1851 to carry a branch of the Leeds & Thirsk Railway (Leeds Northern Railway) three years after the first viaduct had collapsed into the river as it neared completion. The four-span bridge stands 78ft high above the water, each span measuring 56ft 9in across. Approximately 350ft long the replacement bridge cost 9,803.00 to construct.
