Crawford's Bridge, Ouseburn

  • Description

    "On the right is the oldest of the surviving bridges which cross the lower Ouseburn, built in the early to mid-C18th. The name derives from Thomas Crawford, a former pitman, local property owner and publican of the Lorraine Arms, a pub that stood near the north end of the bridge (closed in 1905). Tyne and Wear HER(1946): Ouseburn, Crawford's Bridge High above the valley are the Metro Bridge and Byker Road Bridge." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
