Pillar and abutment of Lands Viaduct

  • Description

    "The Lands (Gaunless) viaduct crossed the River Gaunless north of Cockfield Fell with a span of 640 feet. Following closure it's ironwork was removed in 1964. The standing pillar is actually a pair of columns joined by a connecting wall and stands on the north side of the river. A similar column pair stood on the south bank but was for some reason dynamited. Both pillars and most of the remaining abutments which exist on either side of the river are made from countless thousands of pale 'PEASE' bricks." Photo by Trevor Littlewood, 2012.
