taken 2 years ago, near to Whickham, Gateshead, Great Britain

Aqueduct from Old Derwent Bridge
Aqueduct from Old Derwent Bridge
"On the east side [of Old Swalwell Bridge] is an aqueduct in stone and with lattice girders carrying a cast iron/steel water pipe fed from Benwell reservoir carrying water to a pumping station in Gateshead which supplies that town. This somewhat spoils the appearance of the bridge when viewed from upstream to the west but sand blasting and re-painting in 2015 have improved the appearance."

The 30" water main of the pipe bridge was laid in 1897 by the Newcastle & Gateshead Water Company.
