Shortly after leaving the East Coast main line at Cordio Junction the line to Leeds via Ripon and Harrogate crossed the A167 road south of North Otterington village before reaching the first station south at Newby Wiske. The view looking south shows a section of the lengthy stretch of embankment that runs south west from the former rail overbridge towards Newby Wiske. The approach from the north was mostly on the level or a shallow embankment, and the short built up section just before the bridge has been profiled down some 10m back from the road. Nothing remains of the bridge, where a vehicle can be seen parked where an abutment would have been.
