NT5734 : The new Drygrange Bridge

taken 7 years ago, near to Newstead, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

The new Drygrange Bridge
The new Drygrange Bridge
A68 crossing of the Tweed, replacing the old single track bridge just upstream.
Drygrange Old Bridge
Built by Alexander Stevens between 1776 and 1780 to replace a ferry. The main span of 31 metres was exceptional for this date, and the arch ring itself is only about 75 cm thick at the crown. The sloping string course suggests that at some stage the bridge has been added to to create a level roadway. Listed Category A.
