Structure


Built in 1902-6 by Charles A Harrison for the North Eastern Railway with Cleveland Bridge and Engineering Co as contractors. The bridge was built with four massive steel lattice girder spans carrying four rail tracks, each 8.5 metres deep and up to 91 metres long, supported on solid stone piers. It cost just over £500,000 and was very much a workaday design. LISTED GRADE 2
