Documentary Evidence


A stone bridge shown on Rain's Eye Plan carried the main route to Newcastle over the Howle-Eile Burn. The bridge was known as Hind's Bridge due to its use by farm workers, was situated between the present Hind Street and Silksworth Row. The bridge bore an inscription of 1649, which corresponds with the date of a highways award in Bishopwearmouth. This was probably a rebuild date.
