1/63 Wharfe Bridge
Railway viaduct, partly in the parish of Thorp Arch in the county of West
Yorkshire; now disused. 1847. For the York and North Midland Railway Company;
altered. Coursed squared magnesium limestone; ashlar gritstone dressings.
5 round arches on each bank of the river Wharf linked by 2 fabricated steel
platforms of later date set on a mid-stream pier. The arches on each embankment
spring from piers with ashlar cutwaters and have rock-faced voussoirs beneath
a nosed ashlar band; parapet walls mostly removed. On each river bank is a
larger pier with domed cutwater; on the sides facing the river are seatings
for what were probably arch braces to an original cast-iron bridge structure;
the nosed bands return. Central pier as those on each bank. Original to the
Church Fenton to Spofforth line opened 1847 and linked to Harrogate the following
year. At this point the River Wharfe forms the county boundary, with West
Yorkshire occupying the north bank. The other side of the bridge is listed in the
Parish of Thorp Arch.
