The Bridge (Grade I Listed Building) over the River Tees at Barnard Castle (October 1990)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The castle stands high above the river and the bridge apparently built or rebuilt in 1569, though a stone on the parapet says 1596. It is likely that other bridges existed here before the 16th century and that the last of these was the existing bridge, rebuilt in the 16th century, though much altered since. The stone bridge, Grade 1 listed, has two arches and although it survived the November 1771 flood it did require substantial repairs with new parapets provided. Traffic has weakened the bridge and there is a weight restriction of 7.5 tonnes with traffic now controlled by lights. The bridge carries the A67 road from east to west. A new bridge and bypass has been suggested.
