Howden Bridge

Howden Bridge carries the B7015 over the River Almond in Livingston (West Lothan). It lies just to the west of the Almond Valley Bridge and comprises two segmental arches, built of rubble in 1764, with the southern arch being the larger. The structure is now B-listed.

Immediately downstream is the 40-m / 131- foot wide Howden Weir, which once gathered water for a nearby mill. In 2019 a rock-ramp and pools were constructed to allow spawning salmon and sea-trout to overcome the weir and extend their breeding grounds further upstream.
