OS 6" map, (1958).

The Bridge of Teith, of two arches, was built in 1535 by Robert Spittel, tailor to Queen Margaret. A wall, said to have been part of an old chapel, was still visible in 1844.

New Statistical Account (NSA, Rev G Mitchell - 1844), 1845

This bridge shows no obvious traces of antiquity, with the exception, possibly, of the cut-waters. It was widened in 1866 (inscription on parapet) to double its original width, on its west side. There is no trace of any foundations at the published site of the chapel and no information about a chapel was found.

Visited by OS( WDJ) 18 October 1968.
