NY5030 : Railway Bridge, Thacka Lane

taken 10 months ago, near to Penrith, Cumbria, Great Britain

Railway Bridge, Thacka Lane
Railway Bridge, Thacka Lane
This stone arch skew bridge over Thacka Lane was built from local red sandstone by the Lancaster and Carlisle Railway in their distinctive style. The parapets have been raised to accommodate subsequent deep ballasting of the track of the electrified West Coast Main Line railway which passes over the bridge. The black and yellow paint is intended to alert drivers of high vehicles, thereby discouraging collisions with the low arch.
Thacka Lane is a public bridleway from Townhead to Newton Rigg.
There is an Ordnance Survey cut benchmark near the end of the south west wing wall.
