Bridges On The Tyne


Another new bridge over the Tyne which replaced an earlier bridge which crossed, not the Tyne, but the Kielder Burn which joins the Tyne a few yards east of the present bridge. It gives access to an estate and school after leaving the main road at the northern approach to the village, and leads directly to Butterhaugh Bridge and hence back to the main road south of the village. It was adopted by Northumberland County Council from the Forestry Commission in 2002. A tiny footbridge stands a hundred yards away on the Kielder Burn, by means of which the Visitor Centre can be reached along a footpath.
