13/117 Moorgates Cattle Arch
Originally railway bridge. c.1845. For the York and North Midland
Railway Company. Rusticated sandstone with tooled dressings. Single
semicircular arch of shaped voussoirs on chamfered imposts between
pilaster buttresses. Moulded cornice beneath plain parapet with sloped
coping. Buttresses rise through cornice to form terminal piers to
parapet. Raked quadrant abutments with flat coping, and terminating in
square piers, form retaining walls on each side. Piers have shallow
pyramidal caps. Bridge was built beneath the original Whitby to Pickering
railway line, to facilitate the movement of cattle without driving them
across the line. Line was superseded in 1865 with the opening of the
improved Deviation Line.
