Framwellgate Bridge is sometimes known as Ralph Flambard’s Bridge after its original sponsor, Ranulph Flambard, Prince Bishop of Durham, who built it in 1120. The other medieval bridge in Durham is Elvet Bridge, dating from forty years later; see folios 25 verso–26 recto (D02503–D02504), and drawings in the Tweed and Lakes sketchbook of 1797 (Tate D01014, D01017, D01018; Turner Bequest XXXV 11, 14, 15).
