Old Haydon Bridge, top

  • Description

    "This is a view from the south end of the bridge looking towards the town centre. There has been a bridge here since the 13th century, and before that a ford. The South Tyne is prone to flash floods that have swept away many a bridge over the centuries; the present one was erected in 1774 but has been partially destroyed several times since and widened during the 20th century. Perhaps because of this history of alteration it is only listed at grade II (entry 1154570) rather than a higher grade. There is now a modern road bridge a short distance downstream and this one is closed to motor vehicles. " Photo by Stephen Craven, 2020.
