10/102 Tees Railway Bridge


Railway viaduct carrying 2 tracks over River Tees. 1838-41, designed by
Henry Welsh for the Great North of England Railway Company. Sandstone ashlar.
About 100 metres long. Both faces similar. 4 segmental skew arches on
slightly-battered piers which have projecting low rounded cutwaters with
shallow-domed tops. Sunk decorative panels with roll-moulded borders on
faces; chamfered impost bands. Narrower section of wall breaks forward above
each pier and has a similar sunk panel with dropped keystone. Arch tunnels,
voussoirs and spandrels have chamfered rustication. Flat-coped horizontal
parapet, defined by 2 stepped bands at track level, breaks forward above
piers to form rectangular-plan pedestrian refuges, some now destroyed.
Parapet end piers have low pyramidal caps. Late C20 parapet railings.
Rendered embankment-retaining walls.
