Bridges On The Aln


Hawkhill Bridge is situated on the A1068 road a mile or so east of Alnwick at a point on the river where it flows from north to south. It is on the site of a much earlier stone bridge known as Hawkle bridge, and has a concrete arch, originally stone, and with attractive balustrades. It was strengthened at a cost of 100,000 in 1993 and has been widened at some point from 10 feet to 30 feet.

The road from Lesbury to Alnwick twists and turns and the Aln also loops north and east, back to north before finally turning east towards Alnwick. A footpath a few hundred yards east of the bridge leads to Denwick.
