Bridges On The Wansbeck


This footbridge is of fairly recent origin and was built by Northumberland County Council's Countryside Team to provide a Public Right of Way. It links bridleways from Howlett Hall and Low Angerton, both on the south side of the river, to a path on the north side giving access to a footbridge across the Hart Burn near Bluebell Wood.

The river is deeply incised here and the farm at Howlett Hall is quite near with a road leading under the old railway to the Bolam-Whalton road.
