Bellister Bridge is a concrete bridge across the River South Tyne at Haltwhistle in Northumberland.

History[edit]

The bridge, which was designed to provide road access to the village of Plenmeller on the south bank of the river, was completed in 1967,[1] after the Haltwhistle bypass opened, the road was no longer required and it has solely been used a foot bridge since the late 1990s.[1] The bridge also provides access to Bellister Castle on the south bank of the river.[2]
