Scotswood, Station Approach, underbridge
Railway Transport Site
Underbridge which carried the North Wylam line. It has a cast-iron superstructure. A stone stair (now closed by a brick wall at the foot) rises parallel to the east wall, to turn right (east) and give access to the site of the station platform that stood between the two diverging lines, the bridge wing wall, is ramped down to form a parapet to the stair. The bridge is trapezoidal in plan (to accommodate sidings branching off into the former goods station on the south of the line).
