Elsdon Tower can be seen behind. The complex rearrangements of the turnpike roads in the early C19th that led to the building of the bridge in 1825 are described here LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
The final alteration saw the bridge itself become redundant as the stretch of road from Elsdon village to the north was rerouted along the east side of the Elsdon Burn.
Elsdon, Northumberland

Elsdon is a village and civil parish in the English county of Northumberland about 10 miles (16 km) to the south-west of Rothbury. The name is derived from the Old English meaning Elli's valley.

Formerly the capital of Redesdale, Elsdon contains a very fine example of a Motte and Bailey Castle, and a near perfect Pele Tower (fortified house of a type found in the border country) which is a private residence.

Geographically, Elsdon lies in Redesdale and, as a market town, was once the primary settlement in the area.
