Sherburnhouse Bridge


The old Sherburnhouse Bridge, located to the north-west of the hamlet of Sherburn House in County Durham, dates from 1335, with the upper part of the bridge rebuilt at a later date. The mid-medieval stone bridge crosses Sherburnhouse Beck. The old bridge is no longer used and is located immediately west of the modern road bridge which carries the A181 over Sherburnhouse Beck. The old Sherburnhouse Bridge, which is a Scheduled Monument, is on the 'Heritage at Risk' register because gaps in the structure are forming as a result of tree growth and water ingress.[1]
