Border Counties Railway Bridge (remains)
"The closure of the line had been heralded in August 1948 when severe flooding damaged the Border Counties Bridge over the Tyne at Hexham. The cost of restoration was judges to be too excessive ......... so a temporary patch-up was made to keep the lime open until the final day of reckoning in 1956."
