The Victoria Viaduct
The Victoria Viaduct
"An impressive and dramatic railway viaduct spanning the River Wear on ten arches, near Fatfield.  It was based on the Roman bridge at Alcantara, in Spain, and was opened in 1838 on the day of Queen Victoria's Coronation.  The bridge linked the Durham Junction Railway with the industrial and commercial districts on the north and south sides of the river."
