Tune The New High Level 11937

Composed by
Andrew Rankine

Originally by Robert Whinham. Andrew Rankine used the first part of his tune (see The New High Level) and added a different second part.

The title refers to the 'New' High Level Bridge in Newcastle on Tyne. It was built between 1846 to 1849 and was the first railway bridge over the River Tyne. It was unusual in that there is a road deck below the railway track. it is 112 feet above high water mark. (Information provided by Iain C. Gent, Linlithgow)
