This is oldest surviving single-arch railway bridge in the world and is set in the most beautiful of natural surroundings. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in County Durham.

Causey Arch, what a truly splendid sight, you can step back in time. Drive up to the entrance for Tanfield Railway, park up and walk down. It's a marvellous site with superb history you may not know we had!
