Old Manor Bridge

A simple single-arched hump-backed bridge which crosses the Manor Water a short distance before its confluence with the Tweed, 1¼ miles (2 km) west southwest of Peebles, the Old Manor Bridge is built of rubble and dates from 1702. Its width is 2.9m (9½ feet) and its span 11.6m (38 feet). A plaque records that:

William Duke of Queensberry designed this work and William, Earl of March, his second son, built the same Anno 1702.

The bridge is B-listed.
