Abbey Bridge is a historic stone arch bridge crossing the River Tyne a little to the east of Haddington. It is thought to have been built in the early 16th Century, although it could be late 15th Century. There are three pointed arches, with ribs beneath, although only the southern span crosses the river itself, the other two acting as flood arches on the north bank. The west side of the bridge shows signs of repairs at some time, although some are thought to predate the 1870 datestone. The bridge is still open to traffic, albeit single track and on a minor road.
