Visit this hugely impressive structure on this short walk in Northumberland. The landmark was built in 1852 and consists of 9 arches standing at a height of 35 metres (110 feet) above the South Tyne River.
The walk starts from the car park at Coanwood about a mile from the viaduct. You can then follow a section of the South Tyne Trail to the viaduct. If you prefer you could visit the area from nearby Haltwhistle by following the trail from there. It is suitable for both cyclists and walkers.
It's a beautiful area with the river flanked by attractive woodland. There are also lovely views of the surrounding North Pennines countryside.
Please note that although it's a short walk there are some steep steps and moderate climbs.
It's easy to extend your walk if you have time. You can continue along the South Tyne Trail south towards Slaggyford. The Pennine Way also runs just to the west of the viaduct. Pick this up and you can explore Lambley Common.
