Old Photograph Nasmyth Bridge Scotland

Old photograph of the Nasmyth Bridge over the River Almond between Broxburn and Mid Calder in West Lothian, Scotland. This famous bridge was commissioned by Henry Erskine and designed by Alexander Nasmyth, the noted Scottish painter, architect and landscape designer. Built around 1800 to serve as a crossing point over the River Almond on the southern approach to Almondell and also known as the Almondell Bridge, it was constructed from sandstone in a romantic fashion with parapets and stone seats or across its width. Henry Erskine’s family and their visitors would have enjoyed views of the estate from this point.
