Bridge Of Tweed

Bridge Of Tweed

This bridge no longer exists, although traces of its situation yet remain. Gordon, in his " tinerarium," gives the following description of the state of the bridge, as it stood in the beginning of the last century:- "About a mile and a half from Melrose, in the shire of Tiviotdale, I saw the remains of a curious bridge over the river Tweed, consisting of three octangular pillars, or rather towers, standing within the water, without any arches to join them. The middle one, which is the most entire, has a door towards the north, and, I suppose, another opposite one towards the south."
