Bridge over troubled water
A remarkable feat of engineering, Yarm Viaduct provides the perfect backdrop to this lovely Yorkshire town. It cost just £44,500 to build in 1848 and is 760 yards long. It was built to extend the Leeds and Thirsk Railway from Northallerton to Stockton and Hartlepool. With the river Tees following under it, this viaduct took a staggering seven and a half million bricks to build.
