Low Hail Bridge : Hurworth.
Low Hail Bridge : Hurworth.
Built between 1877-1879 near an old ford. It was financed jointly by the Durham villagers and Lord Rokeby, who owned the land on the Yorkshire side. It was a joint project because it solved two different problems; Lord Rokeby was looking for fertiliser for his fields; the Hurworth residents were looking for some way to get rid of their sewage. Low Hail Bridge brought the sewage to the fields.
