Saints name would suit

I was delighted to read about the new bridge to be built across the River Wear.

I presume that it is to be a pedestrian bridge. Whereabouts will the bridge exit on the Monkwearmouth side?

If you have not already found a name for this bridge, I would respectfully suggest the Venerable Bede Bridge.

Why? Because his connection with this river is enormous.

There are very few buildings, road or bridges named after this famous saint in the City of Sunderland.
