Description

A railway viaduct spanning the Greta Gorge in Ingleton. The viaduct was built as part of the Ingleton Branch line in 1859 and connected the two railway stations in Ingleton, built by rival railway companies. Passengers wishing to reach connecting trains faced a considerable walk. The viaduct has 11 arches with a total span of 244 metres with a height above the River Greta of just over 24 metres. It was built of sandstone quarried in Bentham. Now disused. Source: Western, Robert (1990) The Ingleton Branch. A Lost Route to Scotland. Headington: The Oakwood Press
