Hopefully my photos are not to bad but i am just starting out and have a lot to learn .

Tanfield culvert was built in 1773 to make a big embankment for the railway above along
With the bridge near by called Causey arch which is the worlds oldest railway bridge .
The bridge and culvert are both grade 1 listed . Well starting from the old side you
Have a sandstone slab floor and a bit on you have an ankle jerking boulder floor
Which then turns into a lovely wooden railway sleeper floor then you end up at a not so
nice modern part the only thing is you need waders as I found out when all I was
wearing was wellies so on with the pics .
