Kalemouth Suspension Bridge

The Kalemouth Suspension Bridge is in the Scottish Borders. It crosses the River Teviot just above its confluence with the Kale Water.

The bridge is is one of the earliest surviving carriage suspension bridges in Scotland. It was built nearly 200 years ago by Captain Samuel Brown and demonstrates evolution of his practice.

Mr Ormiston who had errected the bridge at his own expense, opened it to the public for a trifling fee – halfpenny, for a horse and cart and for a chaise one shilling  – an act of kindness for which travellers were grateful.
