Bridges On The Tyne


This bridge across the Deadwater Burn is a stone bridge near the houses and Deadwater Farm which make up the settlement of Deadwater. It is 18 feet wide, has a single span and a stone parapet. It replaced an earlier, narrower bridge. Now only a few hundred yards of road remain before the border and the old county of Roxburghshire in Scotland. But this is still Northumberland and the people are Northumbrian. To the north is Peel Fell and Deadwater Moor. The bridge is included although it is not strictly on the North Tyne at all, but on a mere tributary.
