Bridges On The Wear


Threaded through the railway viaduct at a lower level this is a narrow road bridge on the road from Witton Park to Witton-le-Wear and Crook. A footbridge also existed here before the road bridge but was taken down.

An ironworks existed to the south of here until 1884 and the area has been restored and is known as Paradise Fields, with woodlands and lakes on either side of the Wear. Witton Park is an old village that was condemned to die by the council but has not only survived but thrived.
