Points Bridge at Hagg Bank

  • Description

    "Hagg Bank Bridge (known locally as Points Bridge) is an early example of an arch suspension bridge. It was built in 1876 by the Scotswood, Newburn & Wylam Railway Company. The bridge allowed trains to cross the river from North Wylam Station to join the Newcastle to Carlisle line at West Wylam Junction. The Tyne bridge in Newcastle (1928) and the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia (1932) followed with similar designs." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2003.
