Lipwood Railway Bridge is a railway bridge carrying the railway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Carlisle across the River South Tyne near Lipwood in Northumberland.

History[edit]

The first bridge at Lipwood for the railway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Carlisle was designed by John Blackmore and originally built of timber; it was completed in 1838 but as the condition of the wood deteriorated it was replaced by the current iron-girder structure in 1866.[1]
