Old Photograph Gannochy Bridge Scotland

Old photograph of Gannochy Bridge by Edzell, Angus, Scotland. This bridge, completed in 1724, spans the South Esk at a height of 65 feet by means of a single arch of 52 ft span at a point where it flows through a deep gorge cut through the local red sandstone. It was a bold effort for its time, built at the expense of James Wood, a local farmer, who employed a mason to build the arch but constructed the parapet walls himself. The bridge carries the B966 public road across the River North Esk to the North of Edzell village. The river here forms the boundary between the parishes of Fettercairn in Kincardineshire, and Edzell in Angus, to the East and West respectively.
