Bridges On The Tees


Another disused bridge on the former Darlington to Barnard Castle branch of the North Eastern Railway. It crosses the Tees south to north about a mile upstream from Gainford on a quiet stretch of the river. A solid stone arch bridge, it is not officially accessible to the public.

This bridge was, like its counterpart nearer Gainford, also built to avoid the railway passing through Selaby Park and is likewise now owned by Durham County Council. It can be viewed from the riverbank nearby on the Teesdale Way.
