Viaduct over Fogoes Burn
Constructed in 1867 and running from Swalwell on the River Tyne up to Consett, the Derwent Valley railway finally closed in 1963. The footway on the line of the old railway has been converted into a cycleway and forms part of National Cycle Network route 14.

The terrain is difficult, and this massive viaduct over a tributary of the River Derwent is one of four viaducts along the course of the line.
