Victoria Viaduct over the River Wear

  • Description

    "Opened in 1838. The main arch has a span of 160 feet (about 48 metres) and is the largest masonry railway arch in England. The line was closed to passengers in 1963. It was used for freight until finally being closed in 1991. Still, remarkably, in good condition. (More information on the history of the railway line and of the Washington station nearby can be found at )" Photo by Brian Abbott, 2006.
