Scottish Borders

A small settlement at a crossing over the Whiteadder Water in the Scottish Borders, Chirnsidebridge lies a half-mile (1 km) west of Chirnside and 4½ miles (7 km) east northeast of Duns. The most prominent structure here is a substantial paper mill built next to the river in 1842 by the architect David Cousin (1809-78) and extended several times thereafter. The building is now B-listed and the mill produces speciality papers used to make tea bags and coffee filters. It was once served the Berwickshire Railway, with Chirnside Station located just to the north of the river, but this closed in 1965. The railway viaduct remains and another Chirnside Bridge nearby once carried the road over the Whiteadder Water but has been bypassed by the David Hume Bridge, which now conveys the A6105.
