The bridge links Ovingham village with Low Prudhoe, on the opposite side of the river.

Prudhoe Railway Bridge Away for Restoration

Prudhoe’s railway station footbridge has been dismantled and removed to allow for its restoration.

For the time being, the station is without a footbridge. The line can still be crossed by foot at the level crossing, but you will need to allow extra time when catching a train. The crossing barriers close around 2 minutes before the approaching train arrives.
