A view in ink of Sunderland Bridge in Durham, taken from Croxdale Point. The pictured stone-arch bridge, with four full-centred arches, is an early-16th century renovation of the original three-arch 15th-century bridge. The south arch of this bridge fell in 1769 and was rebuilt; the north arch was rebuilt. The entire bridge was widened and provided with parapets in 1822, after a mail coach overturned, killing two passengers. The bridge stands to this day.
