Causey Arch

By ChristopherA
Another monochrome conversion, this time of Causey Arch, a bridge near Stanley in County Durham, North England. Apparently it is the oldest surviving single-arch railway bridge in the world. It was built in 172526 with two tracks, one to take coal to the River Tyne and the other for returning the empty coal trucks.At the time it was completed it was the longest single-span bridge in the country with an arch span of 31 metres (102 ft). After he designed the bridge, Ralph Wood was so afraid that his arch would collapse that he committed suicide, but the bridge still stands today.

My thanks to IamDora (Dora) and Alfie_P (Alfie) for their valued User Awards and to those who voted and commented on my last upload, Folkestone Harbour Station.

Stay safe all.
