Cambuskenneth Bridge

A picturesque wide-arched concrete footbridge which crosses the River Forth from Riverside (Stirling) to Cambuskenneth, the Cambuskenneth Bridge was opened in 1935, following a lengthy campaign. It replaced an ancient ferry which had been run on behalf of the Patrons of Cowane's Hospital, who had owned the lands of Cambuskenneth since 1709, and probably existed long before this time. The three-span bridge comprises one full and two half-arches and was the work of L.G. Mouchel & Partners, who were pioneers in the use of re-inforced concrete. Vehicles still have to take a 1½ mile (2.5 km) detour via Causewayhead and the New Bridge in Stirling.
