Sunderland Bridge (bridge)


This stone bridge across the River Wear near the village of Sunderland Bridge, Croxdale, dates from the 14th Century. The bridge has undergone several rebuilds, with the end arches rebuilt in 1770 and the parapets widened in 1822.[1] It is Grade 1 listed. The bridge originally carried the Great North Road (A1), until the growing volume of traffic led to rerouting of the A1 and the building of Croxdale Bridge to the east.
