NZ4916 : Newham Bridge (Devil's Bridge)

taken 12 years ago, near to Acklam, Middlesbrough, Great Britain

Newham Bridge (Devil's Bridge)
Newham Bridge (Devil's Bridge)
Newham bridge is known locally as the Devil's Bridge on account of an impression of a cloven hoof in one of the stones (which I couldn't find). It provides a crossing of Marton West Beck one of the six becks of Middlesbrough draining north into the River Tees. The bridge once was much wider and was along an ancient drove road for cattle. The unsightly but necessary green structure is a device for restricting the passage of motorbikes.
