Remnant of the Wire Bridge, Peebles
Remnant of the Wire Bridge, Peebles
The post in the foreground appears to be the only surviving part of a former suspension footbridge across the Tweed here. It was a private bridge for the Kingsmeadows estate, connecting with Wire Bridge Cottage, just in view across the river. Further historical background and a photograph of the bridge are given in 'Peebles Remembered' published by The Tweeddale Society in 2005.
