GV I

Bridge over River Tees, formerly on boundary between the counties of Durham and Yorkshire, with adjoining wall and retaining wall along Bridgegate. Probably C14; repaired in 1596 according to re-set inscription: `1596 ER' said to have come from bridge and now in adjoining south-east wall on approach to Bridgegate. Parapets repaired after 1771 flood. Ashlar. 4 wide ribs to each of 2 pointed arches with 3 offsets flanking pointed cutwater; road-bed rises to highest point over eastern arch. Pedestrian refuges over cutwater, that downstream with inscription Y N R for Yorkshire North Riding, since this was the boundary between the counties until 1974. Squinches at north-west and south-east external corners have been renewed. Retaining wall to river bank below Bridgegate has large, wide, pointed relieving arch, possibly associated with the Castle above (qv). See also Startforth CP.
