Footbridge over River Tees (that
part in Barnard Castle CP)
Footbridge. Dated 1882 on original cast inscription `WILSON
BROS. & CO. ENGINEERS 1882 DARLINGTON'; founder's plates
STOCKTON MI Co'; some Ns reversed. Wrought-iron with cast-iron
approach railings and wood deck. 2 iron trestles support beams
of deck and top girder of lattice parapets joined by overhead
lattice, with thin wrought-iron lamp holders at ends. Lower
girders of parapets descend towards ends and are set in ground
below deck level. 5 flat-section rails attached between
crossed and upright members of lattice. Approaches have fluted
cast-iron posts with domed finials; smaller posts riveted to
descending upper rail of parapet. 3 round wrought-iron rails
threaded through posts.
This bridge was constructed for the mill workers of the nearby
mills, and it allowed access, on foot, from across the river
to the heart of the mill complex.
