This was one of the first things that caught my eye as my bus pulled into Middlesbrough, Soon after I was having a look around it in the broad day light.

I didn’t have the usual exploring suspects with me, Instead my girlfriend climbed it with me the day before I headed back towards Manchester...

As I was packing light I did not have my tripod with me so these are the best pictures I could get using my rucksack and the railings on the bridge top, The quality isn’t the best.

The Tees Newport Bridge was opened on the 28th February 1934 by the Duke of York, Built by the company Dorman Long and designed by Mott, Hay & Anderson.

Standing at 182ft tall and 270ft wide it was the first and heaviest type of vertical lift bridge in Britain, Its final lift took place on the 18th December 1990 but is still used as a road bridge carrying the A1032 across the River Tees.











I’ll be back soon for the Transporter Bridge amongst other things.

Thanks for Looking, Gone...​
