Weetwood Bridge, over River Till


Weetwood Bridge is a single span stone bridge over the River Till, located near Weetwood Hall, and about a mile and a half north-east of Wooler and 2 miles north-west of Chatton in Northumberland. The bridge is thought to have been built in the 16th century[1], with alterations in 1775, and also in the 19th century. The bridge is a Grade I listed structure. It is thought probable that the English army, commanded by the Earl of Surrey, crossed the River Till here on the way to Barmoor Castle on the 8th September 1513, the day before the Battle of Flodden.[2] Today the bridge remains in use and is included as part of the Flodden 1513 Ecomuseum.
