Saltburn Half Penny Bridge

Known locally as the Ha’penny Bridge, the Half Penny bridge was demolished in December 1974 at a cost of approx. £52,000 after being declared unsafe. These photos show the “before”, “during” and “after ” sequence.

The shots are fired…

The legs start  to buckle…

There she goes…

That’s it, no more bridge !  

The bridge plays a big part in the book by Freya North: Secrets.
