Artengill Viaduct


Artengill Viaduct (aka Arten Gill Viaduct) carries the Settle and Carisle Railway line over the valley of Artengill Beck (stream). It is located to the north of the settlements of Cowgill and Stone House in Dentdale, Cumbria, and is about 2km south-east of Dent Railway Station (the station being 6km east of the village of Dent). The viaduct was built from c.1869 to 1875, for the Midland Railway Company. The Chief Engineer was John Crossley and resident engineer was J.Underwood. The viaduct is 201 metres long and has 11 round-headed arches - the 7th, 8th and 9th arches (which span the deepest part of the valley - about 36 metres high) are broader than the others.[1] It is constructed of massive blocks of locally quarried limestone (known as 'Dent Marble' in its polished form, notable for its wealth of fossils). One of the Dentdale quaries and stone works was located at Stone House, close to the viaduct. Artengill Viaduct is a striking feature of the landscape and is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
