Tyne and Wear HER(4920): Woolsington Park, bridges - Details
Woolsington Park, bridges
Four bridges within Woolsington Park. The bridge on South Drive (NZ 2002 7002) which crosses the lake requires repair. The abutments are 19th century but the bridge is made from steel beams with a concrete deck. It is possible that the original brisge was iron framed. On the north abutment there is the beginning of an iron arch, suggesting a wide three centred arch. The condition of the abutment parapet walls is poor. The north-east parapet has fallen into the lake below. East of the lake there is a stone ornamental bridge (NZ 2045 7009) over the Ouse Burn which has been rebuilt in the early 20th century. There is another bridge at NZ 1973 7048 and a fourth at NZ 2036 7030. These bridges cross ditches.
