Bridges On The Tweed


An old bridge near Sunderland Hall and Lindean, it formerly carried the A7 road between Selkirk and Galashiels before the new Tweed Bridge was opened. There are two main arches and a third is a flood arch. Designed and built by John Smith and founded by Sir Walter Scott.

It is set amid woodland on either bank and reached along the B7060 from Yair Bridge in the west to the A7. In 2011 serious defects forced closure of the bridge to all traffic. Category B Listed.
