South Abutment of Ruined Viaduct
South Abutment of Ruined Viaduct
This viaduct spanned the River Gaunless and was built in 1862. It carried the South Durham and Lancashire Railway from Bishop Auckland to Barnard Castle. It was designed by Thomas Bouch who is best remembered for the Tay Bridge disaster. This bridge however successfully served its purpose and was demolished when the railway was abandoned. See NZ1225 : River Gaunless for accompanying picture.
