Wynch Bridge

  • Description

    "Wynch Bridge is the second bridge to have crossed the Tees at this point. The first, built in 1741, was the earliest known suspension bridge in Europe. |In 1802, one of the cables snapped as a party of walkers was crossing the bridge. Three men tumbled into the river in the gorge below; one of them drowned. The bridge was initially repaired but, in 1830, it was replaced by the present bridge." Photo by David Dixon, 2011.
