Whorlton Suspension Bridge

  • Description

    "200ft. long bridge supported by wrought iron chains and stone piers that was designed by John Green of Newcastle who built many other bridges in the area. It is Britain's oldest suspension bridge relying on original metal work. There is a small toll-house at the northern end - no longer in use. A 3 ton restriction is in force on this bridge."
