The stone road bridge at Yarm

  • Description

    "Built in 1400 by Bishop Skirlaw of Durham. The far arch is reputed to have been demolished in the Civil War and replaced with a drawbridge for defence purposes. The River Tees has been in spate for weeks which accounts for the vast amounts of driftwood trapped by the pillars."
