Kielder Viaducta seven arch skew railway bridge built to his pattern, now disused but preserved by the Newcastle and Northumberland Society, carries an information plaque commemorating Nicholson's pioneering work in this field. It was constructed in the form of a long gallery, some feet long and 34feet wide, consisting of iron girders resting on walls built parallel with the road; the girders, and consequently the faces of the bridge, being perpendicular to the roadway and the railway line being laid out obliquely across the top, the need to build a highly skewed bridge of 80feet span was therefore avoided.

Nicholson's life was devoted to the improvement of the mechanical processes in building. Donaldson, M. Firstly, he was able to develop a theoretical third, intermediate surface mid-way between the intrados and the extrados, which allowed him to align the centre of each voussoir, rather than its inner surface, along the desired line, thereby better approximating the ideal placement than Nicholson was able to achieve.

Nicholson died at Carlisle on 18 June and was buried in Christ Church graveyard.
