Old railway bridge over the Tyne
It is not easy to get a good view of the piers of the old railway bridge over the Tyne just west of Hexham. The best viewpoint is a short way upstream. The bridge carrying the Border Counties Railway from Hexham to Riccarton Junction in Roxburghshire, diverged from the Newcastle to Carlisle line at this point. The railway was operational from 1851 to 1958. For pictures of the viaduct in its heyday see LinkExternal link. The unlovely stack in the distance is at Egger's factory NY9464.
