THREE FAMOUS BRIDGES FROM ENGLAND INTO SCOTLAND

THREE FAMOUS BRIDGES FROM ENGLAND INTO SCOTLAND

The old Border Bridge across the Tweed to Berwick (bottom) was built in the reign of James I, and has one architectural peculiarity in the largest arch being, not in the centre, but at the Berwick end. This is on account of the strong flow of the current here. The railway bridge (top left) is "Royal" in virtue of its having been opened by Queen Victoria in 1850. It was designed by Robert Stephenson. By the Twizel Bridge (top right) the English army crossed the river Till into Scotland on its way to Flodden Field.
