Lambley Viaduct Walk, Northumbria

Happy New Year, everyone!

Rob, Brock and I decided to start the new year with a walk at Lambley Viaduct near Alston in Northumbria. The viaduct is over 260m in length. It used to carry the Haltwhistle to Alston railway. The railway opened in 1852 to haul coal from the Alston mines, was closed in 1976.

The walk is part of the South Tyneside Trail. Click on the photos for a larger version!

We walked part of the way back next to the river.
