Suspension Bridge

A footbridge which crosses the River Nith in Dumfries, the Suspension Bridge lies between Devorguilla's Bridge and St. Michael's Bridge. Built in 1874-75, the bridge was B-listed in 1981 and carefully reconstructed in 1985. Iron-link cables are suspended between talls pairs of Doric columns. Linking these columns are fine ornamental iron-work arches, which include the arms of Dumfries, and record the date of the bridge and the name of the Lord Provost (T.F. Smith).
