The world’s oldest surviving single arch railway bridge stands high above a wooded gorge. The arch spans over 100ft, stands 80ft tall and beneath it runs Causey Burn.
Throughout the site there is evidence of its railway past; a replica of an 18th century coal waggon, a concrete bollard marking the former location of Bobgins pumping engine and a series of panels explaining the early waggonways.
Since the railway closed, the area has been recolonised by nature. Woodland paths lined with wildflowers overlook an ancient tree canopy. A variety of birds live in the woodland and visitors are rewarded with a wonderful chorus of birdsong.
There are long paths on both sides of the wooded gorge allowing you to wander around this interesting site. An Easy Access route enables visitors who are less mobile to enjoy wonderful views over the Arch and the gorge below.
