Opening Date

Manor Bridge spans the Tweed a couple of miles upstream from Peebles and was built in 1883 to replace a ford. It consists of 5 shallow stone arches, although only arches 2 and 3, from the north, span the river itself, the others providing flood arches. The roadway across the bridge is wide enough for two cars to pass carefully, although even though the central arch is larger than the flanking arches, the rise is not noticeably humped.

Old Manor Brig

A short distance downstream from Manor Bridge, the Manor Water flows in from the south, and not far up this small stream stands the Old Manor Brig. This single span stone arch bridge dates back to 1702, as proudly proclaimed by a sign on the bridge. Before the Manor Bridge was built, this was the road into Peebles. For many years, the bridge was reduced to a 7.5 Tonne Weight Limit, but has since been closed apart from pedestrians and cyclists.
