Nith - Dumfries Bridge scaffolding

Post by Scots_Charles_River » Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:06 pm

I passed this when driving through Dumfries yesterday.

As I looked downriver from the road bridge, I saw scaffolding around a red sandstone bridge. Some was close to the water level. It looked like the river dropped over a weir just river right after the bridge.

The link below shows the bridge. It seems to be called 'Old bridge' just above 'Whitesands Caul'
