The Durham Record

Eggleston, Abbey Bridge

Photographed by Salkeld & Bailey, 10 June 1864. Verse under mounted print reads " Where Tees, full many a fathom low, Wears with his rage no common foe, For pebbly bank, nor sand bed here, Nor clay-mound checks his fierce career, Condemned to mine a channelled way, O'er solid sheets of marble grey. (Scott's Rokeby)"

1850 - 1875
