Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    Wynch Bridge is a chain suspension bridge across the River Tees. The narrow bridge — which is only wide enough for one person — makes for an exhilarating crossing over the deep ravine and provides great views up the Tees. The current bridge was built in 1820 to replace an earlier bridge, which was erected in 1751 and is believed to be the first of its kind in Europe. The first bridge collapsed in 1802 under the weight of nine miners, killing one. The bridge is Grade II-listed.
