Originally a road bridge, now only pedestrian's and cycles are allowed to use this bridge. Built in 1875 by George Gordon Page, the son of Thomas Page who built Westminster Bridge in London. It was the first road bridge across the South Tyne in Haltwhistle. The bridge was given a major refurbishment by Northumberland County Council in 2003.
