Wearhead Bridge

The top left shows Wearhead bridge from the top side, the right shows from the bottom side.  The bottom right is from the Egglestone series of photos showing the bridge in about the 30s before any trees were there, looks a lot different without greenery!  That bridge was rebuilt in 1989  and the plaque on the bottom right was placed on the wall.  This is the first bridge the River Wear runs under as it leaves its source a few yards up the river.


  1. Hello Heather,

    I wondered if you could tell me where I can find the Egglestone Series photographs? I am trying to work out the names of old pubs and I suspect the old photographs will provide me with the answers I'm looking for!

    Many thanks,
