Jarrow Bridge from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Jarrow Bridge, Tyne & Wear UK. Grade II listed Jarrow Bridge on Don Road is of uncertain age but the historical records show it was repaired between 1781 and 1783 by a Stone Mason called William Allison. There must have been a bridge here is Saxon times to provide access to the Monastery and for centuries after it was the main Road between Jarrow and South Shields but has since been bypassed by a more modern bridge and is no longer in use. Whether and to what extent Allison's work incorporated the original Saxon structure is unknown. The bridge was widened in the early 19th century and restored in 1999.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
