Bridges On The Tweed


An attractive bridge leading to Polmood House set amid wooded hills. Another house stands beside the bridge. The pillars at the end of stone walls have pyramid shaped caps. Category C Listed.

The bridge was apparently constructed by Arrol and Co., the same firm who built the Forth railway bridge. The Polmood Burn joins the Tweed nearby.
