Not so much love for our little bridge this week but still some fabulous entries so please do check them out.
A very good spot by Willow this week, who recognised the bridge as Tees Newport Bridge in Middlesbrough. During lockdown we took our little one on the riverside walk down by the tees, my husband regularly works locally but I have never been so it was all new to me. There are signs along the walk that give a bit of an insight into the river (past and present).
Originally, 12 men would have been employed to man the bridge around the clock, usually requiring four to drive it at any one time. As the number of ships needing to sail up to Stockton-on-Tees declined, so did the usage of the bridge, with the final lift taking place on 18 November 1990. In 1988 the bridge was given Grade II Listed Building status.
