The Scotswood is a disused railway bridge crossing the River Tyne in Newcastle, spanning 212 meters although now it only transports gas and water. It is the fourth bridge on this site and was opened in 1871. In November 1982 it was permanently taken out of use when the King Edward VII bridge was opened and trains were re-routed through Dunston.


Although it doesn't seem it in the video, it was actually really windy so I didn't go to the other side because I was already loosing my balance and didn't want to end up in the Tyne. I will upload the rest of the pictures if I go back when it's less windy. There was a walk way along the left side of the bridge however it just crumbeled when I stood on it.

Your pics are pretty wonky, sure there's nothing wrong with your camera? :p
It's an interesting looking bridge though, we don't have railway bridges like that in Bury
