Armstrong Bridge


Armstrong Bridge is an iron bridge which spans Jesmond Dene. Originally open to traffic it is now restricted to pedestrians. The bridge hosts an arts and crafts fair most Sunday mornings, weather permitting.

"The bridge was presented to the citizens of Newcastle by Sir William George Armstrong and opened on 30th April 1878. The contractors for the masonry were Messrs. W E & F Jackson. It is a lattice girder bridge, 550 feet in length with a 25 foot carriageway. Varying in height from 30 to 65 feet, it is supported on seven columns 70 feet apart – each end of the bridge rested on massive masonry abutments and, despite its solid construction, presents a light and ornamental appearance."
