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.
