Construction (1768 - 1772)

Project (2007)

This project was undertaken to input site information listed in 'Civil engineering heritage: Scotland - Lowlands and Borders' by R Paxton and J Shipway, 2007.

Publication Account (2007)

A masonry seven-arch, 42 ft wide bridge designed by Mylne and built from 1768–72 by John Adam was replaced by the Thomas Telford Bridge of 1833-5. The progressive effects of navigational dredging had weakened the foundations.
