COTHERSTONE FOOTBRIDGE

  • Description

    "Near the attractive village of Cotherstone the River Balder joins the Tees. Upstream, a footbridge crosses the Tees itself where it flows in a north-south direction....The Tees footbridge replaced two earlier ones. The first, a timber bridge, was replaced following flood damage in 1881 and the second was a suspension bridge whose cable snapped in 1929 with 40 people on the bridge, killing one. The present bridge was built by Joseph L Thompson and Sons Ltd of Sunderland......"
