Berwick Bridge

Berwick Bridge
Berwick Bridge, also known as the Old Bridge, spans the River Tweed in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The current structure is a Grade I listed stone bridge built between 1611 and 1624. Four previous bridges stood on the site, with two destroyed by flooding (in 1199, the original, and in 1294, the third), one by an English attack in 1216 and the last, built 1376, served until James I of England ordered the construction of the present bridge. It was then on the main road from Edinburgh to London, and the king (who was also James VI of Scotland) had had to cross over the then dilapidated wooden bridge in 1603 while travelling to London for his coronation. It is still used by cars but in one direction only.
