Name and dates

Horsbrugh Viaduct (1864-1962)

Opened on the Galashiels, Innerleithen and Peebles Railway (North British Railway).


This is a disused single track five span single track viaduct directly west of the former Cardrona station. It crosses the River Tweed. There is a small flood arch at the east end.

A housing development has been built between the viaduct and Cardrona House.

Although the viaduct is alongside the former station it is not Cardrona Viaduct, this is to the south east near Cardrona House.

The bridge has been restored and now carries a footpath.
