Eleven round-headed arches on battered rectangular piers, those to north and south of the 7th, 8th and 9th (which span the deepest part of the valley) broader than the others and with tapered pilasters; short cavetto-moulded imposts at the springing of the arches, rusticated voussoirs, a moulded string course and parapets with rounded coping. Matches Dent Head Viaduct (qv) approx. 1200m to south. A striking feature of the landscape.
