Hartford Bridge (bridge)


Hartford Bridge carries the A192 road over the River Blyth at Hartford, north of Cramlington. There was once a ford to cross the river near here, which is probably where the name Hartford derives from. The ford had been replaced by a bridge in the 13th century. The present bridge dates from the 15th or 16th century. It was widened in the 17th century and extended again in 1904, still retaining parts of the medieval bridge on it's eastern side.[1] The bridge is Grade II listed. The settlement to the north side of the bridge, at the top of Hartford Bank, is known as Hartford Bridge.
