The Featherstone Castle Footbridge is a wooden bridge across the River South Tyne at Featherstone Castle in Northumberland.

History[edit]

The present wooden structure, which has stone steps at either end,[1] was erected in 1990 and then extensively repaired following flood damage in 1995.[2] Following further severe flooding in the area, it collapsed again but was repaired in autumn 2015.[3]
