Chollerford Bridge is a stone bridge that replaced an earlier medieval bridge crossing the River North Tyne[1] at Chollerford, Northumberland, England. It is a Grade II listed building. [2]

It was built in 1785 by Robert Mylne after the previous bridge had been swept away in the great floods of 1771.

Hadrian's Wall crossed the river to Chesters fort on the multi-arched Chesters Bridge about 700 m (770 yd) to the southwest.
