Barnard Castle Bridge


The stone Bridge over the River Tees connects the town of Barnard Castle with Startforth. It dates from the 14th Century and is overlooked by the castle. It was sometimes called "County Bridge" as it was formerly on boundary between County Durham and Yorkshire. The bridge was repaired in 1596 and the parapets were repaired after the Great Flood of 1771.[1] The bridge is Grade 1 listed.
