Looking across the bridge

The Bridge over the Teviot at Denholm was built in 1864 and consists of 3 stone arches. The bridge is built of mottled pinky-grey stonework throughout, although the facing stone seems to be somewhat better dressed than the arch rings. The cutwaters rise as tapering conical piers to the parapet, although by that height they are too small to provide refuges. The centre arch, on the upstream side, has a small datestone above it for 1864.

The parapets continue at either end, flanking the approaches, although they step out once clear of the arches. The roadway is wide enough for two way traffic, but doesn't have pavements despite carrying the Borders Abbeys Way Long Distance Path. However, with only light traffic this is not a particular problem.
