Bridges On The Tweed


A fine 19th century bridge, it carries the B6404 from St Boswells across the Tweed. The stone is an attractive red colour, although originally only the piers and abutments were of stone, the arches being timber-built and rebuilt in stone later. The builder was James Slight. There is a tollhouse at the south end and there are walks along the river bank. Category B Listed.
