Bridges On The Aln


The footbridge at Lesbury, known as Steppey Lane footbridge or Lesbury Wynding, was erected in 1988, a replacement for an earlier unsafe footbridge. The present bridge once served as a pedestrian crossing over the old A1 road at Stannington between Newcastle and Morpeth from 1969 to 1988 and was dismantled after a bypass was opened there. There are footpaths along the river bank nearby and by crossing to the south side of the river Hipsburn and Alnmouth can be reached.

Lesbury is a pleasant old village with an old church and many trees.
