Auchendinny Viaduct


(Auchendinny Railway Bridge)

A modest wrought-iron bowstring viaduct that once carried the Penicuik Railway across the River North Esk in Midlothian, the Auchendinny Railway Bridge lies immediately to the west of the Auchendinny Tunnel, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) southwest of Auchendinny and 1¼ miles (2 km) northeast of the centre of Penicuik. Opened with the line in 1872, this single-span 30-m long (100 foot) bridge was located just to the east of the former Auchendinny Station. It fell from use in 1967 and the former railway is now the route of the Penicuik-Dalkeith Walkway. The Auchendinny Viaduct should not be confused with the Frith Viaduct, located just a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the east on the same line.
