Bridge over the Dee at Kirkcudbright

Conveying the A755 over the tidal River Dee immediately prior to it opening out into its estuary, the Kirkcudbright Bridge (also known as the Dee Bridge) connects the town with Mersecroft and the Kirkcudbright Creamery site to the west. The bridge dates from 1926 and comprises a graceful 5-span reinforced concrete bow-string arch structure. This bridge retains the distinctive cast-iron lamp standards from an earlier but very similar bow-truss bridge constructed in wrought-iron at the same location in 1868. Prior to this, the river was crossed by a ferry.
