Description"Also known as the Union Chain Bridge, when built in 1820 it was the longest iron suspension bridge in the world. The bridge's designer, Captain Samuel Brown, developed a revolutionary technique to suspend the deck using iron bars instead of cables. The bridge spans the River Tweed on the boundary between Scotland and England. Here we are viewing the bridge from the Scottish side of the border. The bridge is now a weak bridge and it is advisable that only one car is on the bridge at a time. Bollards prevent anything other than the size of an ordinary motor car from crossing the bridge."
