Bridges On The Tees


Another footbridge, located upstream of Barnard Castle off the B6277 road, gives access to riverside walks by Flatts Wood on the north side of the Tees. The footbridge is also a pipe bridge for it carries water pipes over its 3 span, lattice girder structure. The river is still quite wide at this point.

Once crossed, the Teesdale Way runs north west along a pleasant river bank path through woodland. There are good views from the bridge in both directions.
