Bridges On The Tyne


An old stone bridge across the ever-narrowing river reached down a steep track from the minor road leading to the source of the River South Tyne. Over the bridge is a farm and the South Tyne Trail. The bridge is locally owned on a public footpath and there are some farm buildings. The valley here is quite deep and it closes in on the river in an isolated but pleasant spot amongst trees. The moors are not far away but this part of the river is not at all bleak or desolate.

Nearby is a tree which has fallen or been placed across the river which could serve as a rudimentary footbridge.
