Fog on the Tyne, High Level Bridge Newcastle

£65.00

Image size: 415.00 x 280.00 mm

An atmospheric watercolour painting of Newcastle’s High Level Bridge full of mood and depth. Fog on the Tyne in all it’s glory. Aptly named after the band Lindisfarne.

I’ve often observed the way early morning fog hangs over the River Tyne causing the bridges to rise out above.

Bridges on the Tyne

The oldest of the existing bridges, the High Level opened in 1849. Previous bridges had been at a low level, but to avoid steep climbs at either end, a bridge must cross the Tyne gorge much higher. When the need arose for a railway bridge to link the south of England with Newcastle and Edinburgh a high level crossing was a necessity. Previous ideas for road bridges had been proposed and several ideas for rail crossings were put forward but the proposal of the York, Newcastle and Berwick Railway was accepted by Newcastle Council and the design by the celebrated railway engineer Robert Stephenson was to have two decks, the upper for the railway and the lower for the road.
