- II

Railway viaduct. Mid C19. Gritstone and ashlar. 7 round arches carry the

with a projecting moulded band at impost level and a roll moulding and band
at track level. Edge-tooled ashlar parapet and flat coping; the end piers
carried up as projecting copings. The inner faces of the piers have rows of
