Corby Bridge (Wetheral Viaduct)


Corby Bridge (more commonly called Wetheral Viaduct) is a railway viaduct over the River Eden, between Great Corby and Wetheral in Cumbria. The 5 arch, red sandstone viaduct, designed by Francis Giles, was built between 1830 and 1834, by William S. Denton for the Newcastle & Carlisle Railway. A cast iron footbridge was added to the north side of the bridge in 1851. The viaduct is Grade I listed.
