Dean Bridge

Linking Queensferry Road and Queensferry Street to the northwest of Edinburgh city centre, the impressive sandstone Dean Bridge was designed and built by Thomas Telford in 1832. It carries a road 32m (106 feet) above the steep valley of the Water of Leith and is 136m (447 feet) in length.

An earlier design for a bridge had been produced by artist Alexander Nasmyth (1758 - 1840).
