Tyne and Wear HER(8432): Blaydon Burn, footbridge - Details
Blaydon Burn, footbridge
The existing feature is possibly that shown on the 3rd and 4th editions OS, but appears to have been substantially rebuilt. It is single arched, the arch being turned in firebricks and apparently the oldest part of the structure. The sides and parapets are built of a mixture of sandstone rubble and "rusticated" blocks with stihl-saw cut margins, which were probably added when the surrounding area was landscaped in the late 20th century.
