Yarm Viaduct
Yarm Viaduct
Seen here from Yarm Bridge, Yarm Viaduct carries the Northallerton - Eaglescliffe railway over the River Tees and much of Yarm town centre; it can be considered one of the great structures of the British railway network. It was completed in 1852 to a design by Thomas Grainger. There are 43 arches in all, most of which are constructed of red brick but the two spanning the river are of stone construction; the contrast between the two materials can clearly be seen in this picture. The viaduct stands 65 feet above the river.
