Bywell Bridge is a 19th-century stone bridge carrying the B6309 road across the River Tyne in Northumberland, England. Just south of the bridge is Stocksfield, and just to the west is Bywell. It is a Grade II listed building.[1][2][4]


The bridge was opened in 1838. It was built at a cost of £15,000, which was paid by the local landowner T W Beaumont.[5] The designer was the architect George Basevi.[3] The bridge joins Bywell and the adjoining roads with Stocksfield. It is of ashlar masonry, with five segmental arches crossing the river, and two flood arches, without parapets, to the south.[6]

The remains of the piers of an ancient bridge, believed to be Roman, stood nearby until demolished on Beaumont's instructions when work on the present bridge began.[7][8]
