The old Warden Railway Bridge

History[edit]

The first bridge at Warden for the railway between Newcastle upon Tyne and Carlisle was designed by John Blackmore and originally built of timber; it burnt down in 1848 and cast-iron arches were placed on the original piers.[1] A second bridge on a different alignment was completed in 1904 and remains in use as part of the Tyne Valley line.[1]
