Wetheral Railway Viaduct
The viaduct at Wetheral was built between 1830 and 1834 to carry the Carlisle to Newcastle railway. It has five arches, and at 100 feet high above the River Eden, has beautiful views downstream, and as far as the Scottish Hills.
A footpath goes across the railway viaduct between Wetheral station and Great Corby.
The seat sculpture by Tim Shutter is one of the ‘Eden Benchmarks‘.
