Duchess Bridge, Alnmouth


The stone bridge over the River Aln at Alnmouth, built in 1864. The bridge is Grade II listed. A cast-iron plate on the south parapet has the words: 'TO ELEANOR / DUCHESS OF NORTHUMBERLAND / THE PUBLIC ARE CHIEFLY INDEBTED / FOR THIS STONE BRIDGE / AND FOOTPATH TO THE STATION / A.D. MDCCLXIV'. On north side a similar plate states 'THE DUCHESS' BRIDGE 1864'.[1] A metal pedestrian walkway was built alongside the stone road bridge.
