NZ1933 : Looking rather dodgy

taken 8 years ago, near to Newfield, County Durham, England

Looking rather dodgy
Looking rather dodgy
The central pier supporting the footbridge over the Wear has a distinct lean to the left, and one would guess that the foundations have been undermined. The substantial pier once supported a much larger bridge that carried coal wagons, so one assumes that Durham County Council are happy that this structure is still safe.
