I’ve already taken far too many photos of Berwick’s three bridges but it was a beautiful afternoon, the sun was shining through a soft mist and the camera was itching to get out of my bag. The headline photo shows part of the Royal Border Bridge railway viaduct seen through an arch of the old Berwick Bridge. There’s just a glimpse of the high level Royal Tweed Bridge too but not enough to confuse the image.
Step through the narrow arch by the café on the quay for an uninterrupted view of the two bridges upstream.
Seen from the top of Meg’s Mount the concrete arches of the Royal Tweed Bridge look elegantly delicate.
And finally here’s the extraordinary structure of the nineteenth century Royal Tweed Bridge stretching from sunshine into the mist.
