Bridges On The Wear


Another railway bridge, still in use on the Weardale Railway, it is on a bend of the river west of Rogerley Hall. The bridge is deep in the valley and not accessible along any footpath and its single line crosses a rocky river bed.

Rogerley quarry lies on the north side, once well known for its Frosterley marble, a black limestone.
