The bridge at Belleek

The most westerly village in the UK, Belleek is a border town in County Fermanagh. The main street terminates on the bridge that crosses the River Erne and enters County Donegal.

The present bridge, replacing an earlier stone one built at the start of the 19th century, was constructed in the 1950s as part of the Erne Hydroelectric scheme. The configuration of the border and the lack of other crossings of the Erne mean that the bridge provides – in conjunction with a 300-metre-long trip along the R920 in the Republic of Ireland – the most direct and convenient route from Belleek to the main A46 road to Enniskillen and to the B52 to Belcoo.
