Witton Bridge
Witton Bridge
Once carried the traffic on the A68 across the River Wear, which has since been moved to a modern bridge roughly a quarter mile upstream.
Weardale Way walkers, however, are obliged to cross the river on this Grade II Listed structure dating back to 1788 - replacing earlier bridges.
Weardale Way

A 77 mile route following the River Wear from the sea at the Lindisfarne Memorial, Sunderland to the headwaters in the east Pennines, keeping as close as is possible to the river. It visits Lumley Castle, Durham (where the Castle and Cathedral forms a World Heritage Site), Bishop Auckland and Stanhope. After Stanhope the Way makes a northward loop to Rookhope to take in part of a tributary, Rookhope Burn.
