Bridges On The Tyne


At a bend in the road with a house on the corner at Bells Burn (seen on the right of the smaller picture), is a single arched stone bridge. It was given a reinforced concrete saddle in 1988. The road turns again once it has crossed the bridge, climbing a little before skirting the edge of the forest. The old railway trackbed runs alongside the road from Kielder as far as here, then runs a little to the southwest where rough grassland covers the earth. A cottage lies along the road but this feels like very remote country.
