Viewed from just below Chain Bridge, on the Scottish bank.
River Tweed
The River Tweed is 97 miles long and flows generally west to east through the Scottish borders. It rises at Tweedsmuir and passes through small towns like Peebles, Selkirk, Melrose, Galashields and Kelso, before entering the North Sea at Berwick on Tweed.
Union Chain Bridge
This chain-link bridge (as distinct from a cable suspension bridge) was built in 1819-20 by Capt. S. Brown R.N. at a cost of 5000. When it was built this was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The deck is of iron girders with a wooden roadway.

The English side of the bridge is listed grade 1 (list entry number 1042214) and a Scheduled Ancient Monument; the Scottish side is listed category A (reference 13645).
