Excellent bridge. This is an original cast iron chain bridge. Built in the 1830s with a toll house on the northern bank. It overlooks a beautiful stretch of the River Tees and is on the Teesdale Way path. Recent works include a non-slip coating on the wooden road and paths.

Great place to visit... walk trails do venture off from this bridge so you've a wide choice of views & experiences... You can walk to Barnard castle if you choose. Overall a nice place to visit... no real facilities, however it's Yorkshire.. what more do you need. Please note except views from the bridge wheel chair users can't really venture any further due to the nature of the trails etc

A lovely little village with a very nice pub, the perfect distance from Barnard Castle for it to be a good walk especially during the summer month's.

Lovely village, historic toll bridge. Just a shame the Lido is now all closed off.
