The Tyne Bridge – Newcastle Upon Tyne

The Tyne Bridge famously arches over the river Tyne on Tyneside, linking Newcastle and Gateshead.

This iconic Geordie symbol was officially opened in October 1928 by King George V and was designed by the same company who designed The Tyne Bridge was designed the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland.

The bridges towers were originally designed to be used as warehouses with five storeys, however they were never actually completed or used.
