Stockton Forge Makers Bridge, Little Ayton

I spotted this in Little Ayton as I was walking from Petch Butchers in Great Ayton to Fletcher’s Farm Coffee Shop. The bridge carries the name plate of Stockton Forge Makers, Stockton-on-Tees.

  1. There are a number of other Victorian bridges built by the Stockton Forge still in existence. These include-
    Sackville Street, Manchester.
    Irwell Street bridge, Salford.
    Killorglin Railway Viaduct. County kerry, Ireland.
    Until recently there was also a bridge on the Yangon – Mandalay Railway in Myanmar. This railway line was upgraded around 2008 so I`m not sure if it is still there.
    The Stockton forge must have had a good reputation for a bridge to be erected in what was formerly Burma.


  2. I used to work in the building which used to be Head Wrightsons Forge off Norton Road after it was took over by Nesstock Steel stockholders in the 70s.
