Old bridge on the Border Counties railway
The Border Counties railway from Hexham to Riccarton Junction was opened in 1862 and closed by Beeching and follows a low gap across the Scottish border at only 230 metres elevation. The bridge over the old line still stands. The western edge of Kielder Forest can be seen in the distance.
