Causey Arch

Normally I would incorporate Causey Arch into a long run from home.  But, sandwiched between last nights 8 miler which included 30 min at tempo and tomorrows planned 5 x 3 min session, all that was on the menu for this evening was an easy 5 miles.  So I drove over to Causey Arch and in hazy sunshine and with temperatures still pushing 25C I set out alongside Tanfield Railway at an easy pace allowing time to take some photos.

The Causey Arch is the oldest surviving railway bridge in the world and when it was built between 1725 and 1726 was the longest single span bridge in the country.
