J Gifford 1996.

This bridge carries St Michael's Bridge Road across the River Nith to the S of the suspension bridge NX97NE 108. The river here forms the boundary between the parishes of Troqueer (to the W) and Dumfries (to the E).

The location assigned to this record defines the midpoint of the structure. The available map evidence suggests that it extends from NS c. 97281 75600 to NX c. 97334 75637.
