River Gaunless


  • Description

    "This stone bridge carried the Haggerleazes Branch of Stockton and Darlington Railway over the River Gaunless. It was built in 1830 and was the world's first skew railway bridge crossing the river at an acute angle. It was designed by George Dixon of Cockfield. See http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/60485 for a closer view. The river here is quite high due to overnight heavy rain." Photo by Mick Garratt, 2008.
