Iron Bridge


The iron footbridge over Debdon Burn at Cragside was manufactured in 1870s at Lord Armstrong's Elswick Works. The footbridge is Grade II* listed.[1] The footbridge was closed to the public in 1979, after being declared structurally unsafe. In 2008 work to strengthen and repair the bridge began and it was reopened to the public in March 2009, after almost 9 months of sympathetic conservation work by Balfour Beatty. Over 4,000 rivets were replaced across the bridge.[2]
