Twizel Bridge
Twizel Bridge
Said to be one of Britain's finest medieval bridges. Completed in 1511, it was, until 1727, the longest (27 metres) single-span bridge in Britain.
Used by both the English and Scottish armies on the way to the battle of Flodden Field. On the morning of the battle (9th September 1513) the English vanguard of some 10,000 men plus cannon passed over this bridge on the way to outflank the Scottish.
