Leaderfoot Viaduct
The 19-arched Leaderfoot Viaduct (or Drygrange Viaduct) was built in 1865 by Charles Jopp and Messrs Wylie and Peddie for the Berwickshire Railway, and formed part of the line which connected Newtown St Boswells and Reston. Regular passenger traffic on the Leaderfoot ceased in August 1948 following severe flooding. Thereafter, the viaduct was only used by freight trains travelling as far as Greenlaw. This continued until 19 July 1965 when the line was finally closed.
