Bridges On The Tyne


At the town of Haltwhistle are five bridges, two of them on the A69 Haltwhistle by-pass as it crosses and re-crosses the Tyne. These bridges are built of concrete and are quite low as they sweep over the river on the eastern and western edges of the town. The eastern bridge is near the old railway viaduct and the river runs through low-lying meadows with Plenmeller to the south and the hills rising steeply away in the distance. A footpath on the north bank of the river gives access to the bridge from the town.
