Inside the Swalwell Pipebridge
Northumbrian Water have been carrying out renovation work on the Victorian Pipebridge over the Derwent River in Swalwell, which still carries 25 million litres of water a day. I was given access to the bridge recently to film and photograph it.
Work is on-going to replace some of the pipe supports and brackets and some reinforcement work is taking place before the painting of the bridge is carried out.
