Looking across the bridge

The bridge across the Endrick Water at Honeyholm is almost identical to the Killearn Bridge further downstream. The primary difference seems to be that this bridge has shallower arches, perhaps due to the fact that it is further upstream and so spans a smaller flow of water. Built of the local red sandstone, the two arches are slightly recessed from the abutments at the base, although the abutments taper to meet the spandrels at parapet level. The central pier sits in the river, with a small cutwater in the channel. The roadway is a narrow S2, without pavements, and carries a road that was classified as the B818 in 1922, but subsequently demoted to its current unclassified state.
