Northern end of the Queen Alexandra Bridge

  • Description

    "The Queen Alexandra Bridge over the River Wear was built in 1909 and was originally a double-decker bridge with a railway on the top (long since discontinued and dismantled). In the foreground are the brick arches of the former railway. The bridge is a Grade II listed structure and its lattice girder construction is the heaviest ever built. Cycle- and foot-ways pass under the arches seen in the distance to span the river on the outside of the girders." Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2015.
