Bridges On The Wansbeck


A very attractive bridge designed by James Paine bringing the B6342 road from the south across the Wansbeck and up to Wallington Hall. Built using a pleasing honey-coloured sandstone it has a main arch with two flood arches on either side. There are sculptured stone parapets and the single track roadway climbs at either end with a severe hump in the centre. Traffic collisions are common, requiring replacement of damaged balusters. It is Grade 1 listed.

Wallington Hall, half a mile to the north, is a 17th century building now owned by the National Trust and with extensive gardens and a lake and a popular visitor attraction.
