Tyne and Wear HER(3627): Crawcrook, Stanley Burn Bridge

  • Description

    "Stanleyburn Bridge carried the Gateshead to Hexham road (HER ref. 3628) over the Stanley Burn. The burn forms the county boundary here, so the bridge lies in both Tyne and Wear and Northumberland.

The road was turnpiked in 1777 and the plan clearly pre-dates this occurrence. The suggestion is therefore that a bridge was already in situ prior to the turnpiking of the road..."
