A View of Tanfield Arch in the County of Durham. From the Painting of the late Joseph Atkinson of Newcastle upon Tyne in the Possession of Sir Mat.w White Ridley Bar.t by whose Permission this Plate is Engraved for the Benefit of the Widow and Children.
Painted by J. Atkinson. Engraved by J.C. Stadler.
[n.d., c.1804.]
Very rare aquatint. Sheet 500 x 615mm (19¾ x 24¼"). Trimmed within plate on three sides, repaired tear top left, a few signs of surface wear.
A picturesque view of the Causey Arch, a single-arched bridge built for a horse-drawn railway for transporting coal from Tanfield Coal works to the River Tyne. Built 1725-6 by stonemason Ralph Wood, it was the longest single-span bridge in the country with an arch span of 31 metres (102 ft), a record it held until 1756. Over 900 horse-drawn wagons crossed each day. In the 19th century, the wooden track was replaced with metal rails, and horses were replaced by stationary steam winding engines. The line closed in 1962 but the arch was restored in the 1980s for public use. Engraved by J.C. Stadler after a watercolour by the Newcastle artist Joseph Atkinson.
