Laurie Bridge

A picturesque ironwork footbridge across the River Teviot in Hawick (Scottish Borders), the Laurie Bridge connects Wilton Lodge Park with Volunteer Park, a half-mile (0.8 km) west of the town centre. It was opened by HRH The Prince of Wales on the 3rd December 1924, who later became the controversial King Edward VIII. An extensive programme of maintenance was undertaken in 2010, including the replacement of the parapet.
