Bridging the Wear
Wearmouth Bridges, Sunderland
The River Wear lies just to the south of South Shields and enters the North Sea at Sunderland. The city is bifurcated by the river with the older Monkwearmouth, Seaburn, and Fulwell to the north and the younger city centre, Grangetown, Ryhope, and Hendon to the south.
Two bridges cross the Wear near it’s mouth, carrying traffic into and away from the busy city centre, on the left the road bridge and on the right the rail bridge.
