Prebends' Bridge, Durham and Framwellgate - County Durham (UA)

Bridge over the River Wear designed in 1772-8 by George Nicholson for the Dean and Chapter of Durham Cathedral. The masonry of the arches has deteriorated significantly in recent years; however, a programme of remedial works, part-funded by Historic England, was completed on the southern arch during 2011-12. Works have yet to be completed on the northern arch.
