Tyne and Wear HER(1311): Woolsington, Yewsebridge (Ouse Bridge) - Details
Woolsington, Yewsebridge (Ouse Bridge)
The description of the boundaries of Newburn manor in 1613 included reference to "the stone bridge called Yewsebridge in the way leading from Pontisland to Newcastle...". The present bridge is 20th century, but that of 1613 was probably medieval in origin.
