The Viaduct

Newton Cap Viaduct, Bishop Auckland, United Kingdom History // "One of the Wear's major bridges, it opened in 1857 for the North Eastern Railway's branch linking Darlington, Bishop Auckland and Durham. It stands one hundred feet high with sixty foot spans. After closure in 1968 it became part of the Brandon - Bishop Auckland Railway Walk but in 1995 was converted into a road bridge. Widened by 13 feet with footpaths to either side, concrete was used on top of the stone deck. It is part of the A689 road linking Bishop Auckland with Crook. The viaduct is Grade 2 listed" (Bridges on the Tyne, 2016)
