Taken from the end of Tweed Bridge in Peebles, Scotland, looking over towards the Old Parish Church. The Peebles Old Parish Church sits at the west end of the High Street and overlooks the Tweed Bridge. It occupies the site of Peebles’ medieval castle. Today’s Church was built between 1885 & 1887 and a cost of 9,500 pounds and was dedicated on 29 March 1887. It includes some features from an earlier parish church built on the site in 1784. The Tweed Bride is the only road crossing over the River Tweed in the town. The original structure of the bridge dates from the 15th century. Until the 18th century it was the only bridge crossing of the Tweed above Kelso. It was rebuilt in 1663 using stone from the ruined St Andrew’s Church, and it had additional arches added in 1799, by John Hislop; it was widened twice – from 8ft to 21 ft in 1834 by John and Thomas Smith and from 21 ft to 40ft in 1900 by McTaggart, Cowan & Barker.
