Photos of Newcastle

Corbridge Bridge and River Tyne

A recent visit to Corbridge left me with too many photos to put on one page here is the first of 2 or 3 posts coming in the near future.

The seven-arched bridge was completed in 1674 and is the sole bridge from source to mouth of the Tyne to remain standing after the severe flood of 1771. Originally built for pack-horse and coach traffic, it was widened in 1881.

And a few photos already published on my Riding Mill to Corbridge leg of my Walking the River Tyne Westwards Project.
