Artist's Description

The Devorgilla bridge (named after Devorgilla, Lady of Galloway the mother of King John Balliol of Scotland) was originally a stone built bridge built around 1430. The bridge was badly damaged by a flood around 1620 and was extensively repaired or rebuilt shortly after as a nine arch sandstone bridge spanning over 200 feet, the bridge was further modified in 1794 because of reclamation work on the east bank of the river three arches were removed leaving the bridge in its current 6 arch form.
