Aqueduct/footbridge across the River Tees. Dated 1893. Built by Head,
Wrightson and Co., Engineers of Thornaby on Tees. Cast-iron bridge span and
columns, planked walkway and rock-faced stone end sections.
45-metre long, jointed span, with cross-braced sides, carried on 2 sets of squat
paired columns with moulded bases and dentilled capitals. Double walkway to
either side of encased water pipes. Similar end sections: 2 octagonal-plan
end piers with corbelled, chamfered caps, linked by a short flight of steps to
