Wearmouth Bridge

  • Description

    "The first Wearmouth Bridge was built in 1796 and was the catalyst for growth of Sunderland. It was rebuilt by Robert Stephenson in 1857. The present steel-arch bridge was built in 1927 to a design by Mott, Hay and Anderson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mott,_Hay_and_Anderson Below the bridge, on the north bank left of the bridge pier, you can just see the art installation, 'Second Sun' by Andrew Small (2009) made up of a dome on top of a grey metal tripod."
