Bridges On The Coquet


This bridge is a private one and seems to be of concrete faced with stone and just wide enough to take a vehicle. It seems to be constructed using a series of arches and is a rather attractive little bridge of light brown stone.

There is a house nearby and it's close to the footpath from Felton to Weldon Bridge. This is St. Oswald's Way, a long distance path running from Holy Island to Heavenfield near Hadrians Wall, and divided into 6 sections, this being part of the Warkworth to Rothbury section. The area around is wooded and Catheugh is easily reached from Weldon Bridge, the path continuing east to wards Elyhaugh ford (see picture below).
