The High Level Bridge

The High Level Bridge.

The High Level Bridge was the world's first combined rail and road bridge. It was designed by engineer Robert Stephenson, son of the famous Tyneside railway pioneer George Stephenson.
The bridge was built between 1847 and 1849 and completed the railway line between London and Edinburgh and still forms part of the UK's East Coast Main Line.
