A Scottish Masonary Arch Bridge

A Masonry Arch Bridge over a river in Scotland

Masonry Arch bridges are built of stone, and generally span up to about a 100 ft (30m) maximoum in one span, with wider rivers being crossed by multiple arches. The other limiting factor is the wider the span the taller the bridge. The Causey Arch in County Durham on the Tanfield railway is one of the biggest examples of early bridge building.
