The Old Haydon Bridge is a footbridge across the River South Tyne providing access to and from the village of Haydon Bridge, Northumberland, England.

History[edit]

Old Haydon Bridge in January 1837

The first bridge at Haydon Bridge was built in around 1309, but following the flood of 1771, it had to be rebuilt in 1776. Following structural surveys it ceased to be used by cars and converted to footbridge use only in 1970.[1]

It is listed as a Grade II building by Historic England. [2]
