Ruswarp Bridges

Ruswarp seen here in 1913, the old road bridge across the Esk is in the foreground, it was replaced with the present structure in 1936. behind is the rail bridge.

David Richardson tells us: ”The bridge was photographed assembled at Dorman, Long & Co. Ltd’s Bridge Yard in February 1936 just before being shipped to the village. One of my grandfathers jobs in his early years was to repaint the bridge when it was its original color blue, these days its painted green.”
