Bothal Footbridge

Bridge In Bothal, Northumberland

A small suspension footbridge crossing the river Wansbeck.

If head down the public footpath down the side of the church and castle you will eventually come to the river Wansbeck where you can see both the footbridge and the stepping stones.

This suspension bridge was built for the rector of Bothal church to allow them to easily cross the Wansbeck from the church to the Rectory which was on the south bank.

The bridge no longer seems to be in use and access to it is also on private land. So just admire it from the riverside or the stepping stones.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
