Bridges On The Tyne


Another obscure footbridge near the South Tyne Trail and leading to Lee Houses farm. It is hidden away amongst the trees and is a just a short wooden span with iron railings.

Nearby is Ashgill Force, a waterfall situated in a rocky gorge on a stream flowing into the South Tyne. Behind the waterfall and high above it is Ashgill Bridge carrying the B6277 Alston to Middleton - in - Teesdale road. The falls have a drop of 50 feet and it is possible to walk behind them.
