Finchale Bridge Tree Blockage

Updated: Mar 7

The fallen trees that have been backed up since last year at the Durham city weirs are blocking the spans of Finchale bridge.

The blockage covers two of the four spans of the bridge and fortunately is on the side that gets the least amount of flow, with one of the spans clear under the tree trunk blocking it.

The club has contacted the Durham County Council bridge assets team to see if it can be removed to avoid any structural damage.
