Description"'Built in 1511, Twizel Bridge offered the only dry crossing point of the River Till between the south bank of the Tweed and Ford 10 miles to the south. At the time of its construction it was the largest single span bridge anywhere in Britain (90ft from bank to bank) and is typical of early 16thCentury (late medieval) single span bridges with a comparatively narrow deck spanning between wider bridge abutments and with 5 close-set chamfered ribs under the arch helping to form and support the structure. Unusually however it remained largely unmodified between the time of its construction in 1511 until it was closed to road traffic when the new bridge was opened in 1983.' http://archive.is/9EQ6X Twizel Castle is in the trees beyond."
