View of Hownsgill Viaduct (aka Hownes Gill) from the north-west (Castleside) on the former Stanhope & Tyne Railway, Consett to the left of the picture and Stanhope to the right. The viaduct was designed by Thomas Bouch (of the original Tay Bridge fame...) and opened in 1859, replacing rope-worked inclines either side of the Gill. Following closure of the railway, the trackbed is now part of the Sustrans Sea to Sea Cycle Path as the Waskerley Way. 14:28, Monday 25th February 2019.
