Description

Railway viaduct, embankment and overbridge. 1851-2, to carry the Rowsley to Buxton extension of the Midland Railway over the River Derwent. Massive coursed gritstone with rock-faced dressings. Slightly curved viaduct section to east end comprising four semi-circular headed arches, springing from rock-faced padstones, set on rectangular piers rising from rounded cutwaters. A shallow parapet sits on a plain band course, with plain C20 railings above. On the northern side, at either end of the viaduct, shallow raking buttresses support the abutments. Further to the west, a substantial embankment is faced with masonry on its northern face. This embankment is pierced at the western end by a narrow stilted semi-circular arched opening over a trackway. The arch is flanked by shallow pilaster-like buttresses, extending from which are downward sloping splayed and coped abutments, terminating at plain stone piers. See also Matlock Urban District.
