Description"The Stanley Burn marks the junction between Gateshead and Northumberland, in its region south of the River Tyne. A plan of 1766 indicates a bridge crossing the burn at this point approached by a meandering path from Prudhoe. The road was turnpiked in 1777 and the existing bridge was utilised as the crossing point. A new crossing was built to the south in the 1840s and the old bridge was thereafter used as a footpath crossing. http://www.twsitelines.info/Siteline.nsf/8f71f680ce308c9a802573a80061c133/70f4bf815330764a802576af003e5ecf" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2012.
