We walked down the hill to see what progress had been made in the restoration of the bridge. Two of the contractors on site on the English side were very helpful in bringing us up to date and took time with us to answer our questions.

The bridge has been demolished but will be rebuilt in the next twelve months. the work is underway but the diversion around is long so avoid until you are sure it is open.

Had a ride out to this one night and a small walk over and into Scotland (didn't do the drive as car was to big). The bridge is well worth a look at and with great history.

A fascinating bridge in a lovely location... Scotland on one side, England on the other. Well worth a detour.

With chains based on ships rigging this was built by a retired naval officer. It costs half as much as a stone bridge and is the oldest vehicle carry suspension bridge in Europe. A Toll House stood on the English side. Robert Stephenson attended the opening in 1820 and Isambard Kingdom Brunel made a special visit to study it when he was eighteen years old. In 1902 it was strengthend with two extra cables, otherwise it has not been changed. It will shortly close for a multi-million pound restoration.

We took a short explore to this quiet bridge, parking for free on the England side. There's not any flags or real signage on the Scottish side (other than the modern welcome to Scotland side) but is a nice sign on the English side.

We took a short walk east on each bank, although on the Scottish side it quickly became overgrown.

I think they are about to carry out restoration works on the bridge, so check before visiting (or indeed trying to cross!)

This unique bridge crosses the River Tweed and links England and Scotland. It has a most interesting construction going back some 200 years. A marvellous feat of engineering for its day.

Fabulous bridge, well worth a visit and walk across. On one side you are in England, and on the other Scotland. Very historical bridge.
