Close Up of Toppled Pier

  • Description

    "This pier once carried the South Durham and Lancashire Railway from Bishop Auckland to Barnard Castle over the River Gaunless and was built in 1862. It was designed by Thomas Bouch who is best remembered for the Tay Bridge disaster. This bridge however successfully served its purpose and was demolished when the railway was abandoned. See [[61927]] and [[60488]] for accompanying pictures." Photo by Mick Garratt, 2008.
