Catterick Bridge
Catterick Bridge
The River Swale at Catterick Bridge with a little bit of extra water in it.
Swale Bridge was built in 1915, as part of the Catterick Camp Military Railway, initially carrying a 2ft gauge construction line from the Richmond branch westwards to Cattrick Camp. It was converted to standard gauge in 1916, and was run by the military until 1923 when it was handed over to the LNER. Passenger services to the Camp ended on 26th Oct 1964, freight continued for another 5 years. But by Oct 1970 the branch had been dismantled, and has left little trace of its existence except for the girder bridge over the Swale.
