Accommodation arch in rail-
way embankment north of
Low Lambton Farm
Accommodation arch in embankment for Victoria Railway Bridge. Between 1835 and
1838; widened c.1850. Ashlar and brick. Ashlar retaining walls in south
embankment flank skew arch of ashlar in western part, brick arch in eastern
part. Ashlar retaining walls over arches. Western arch has bracketed keystone
on band; eastern arch plain. Historical note : the arches allowed the Lumley
waggonway through the embankment to Low Lambton Staiths; the widening
probably took place to allow an easier curve to the bridge. Sources :
