Category:Gaunless Viaduct (1862)

English: Gaunless Viaduct, also known as the 'Lands Viaduct', was a railway viaduct in County Durham. It was designed by Thomas Bouch to carry the South Durham and Lancashire Union Railway between Bishop Auckland and Barnard Castle over the River Gaunless and also the Haggerleases branch of the railway to Butterknowle.

Bouch designed the viaduct in 1862 and it was built as four lattice truss spans supported on paired circular brick piers, opening in 1863. It was demolished a little over a hundred years after its opening. Two of the brick piers were toppled by explosives, but left on site.
