River Wansbeck – Ashington

Black Bridge – River Wansbeck

Photo of the railway bridge, known locally as the Black Bridge, this is a steel viaduct spanning the River Wansbeck between North Seaton Station, Ashington and West Sleekburn. The bridge carries very little traffic at the moment but once carried large numbers of coal trains as well as passenger trains to Ashington and Newbiggin and aluminium trains to and from Alcan at Lynemouth.

This photo was taken during a walk along the river from Wansbeck Riverside Park at Sheepwash in November 2012 on a sunny, frosty morning.
