Winch Bridge, nr Holwick


An iron suspension footbridge with planked walkway, over the River Tees, by the Low Force waterfalls, near Holwick and Newbiggin. The bridge was built c.1820 for the Duke of Cleveland and is Grade II* listed. It replaced the earliest (c.1741) permanent suspension bridge in Europe.[1] The original bridge was built to enable lead miners who lived at Holwick to reach the mines at Middleton-in-Teesdale.
