Road bridge over former railway path near Swalwell Bridge
The Swalwell or New Derwent Bridge dates from 1927. It carries the B6317 (Hexham Road) over the River Derwent.

"Underneath the bridge, on the north side, once ran the old 'Main Way', the railway carrying coal and coke to the staiths at Derwenthaugh, and the bridge was built with a sufficient span to accommodate this railway which closed in 1985 and is now a footpath and cycle track."
