Description"Armstrong Bridge was constructed 1875-78 for the citizens of Newcastle by Sir William Armstrong, and Messrs. WE Jackson, masons. The wrought iron girders and columns are set on cast iron rocker bearings, and the central column has sliding bearings, to allow for movement caused by mining subsidence and heat. Such articulated construction was next used in building motorway footbridges. http://www.heritagegateway.org.uk/Gateway/Results_Single.aspx?uid=304368&resourceID=5" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
