About this memory

1964 – This was the original crossing en route to Queensferry in centuries past.

You can just make out 2 large blocks of stone which were placed under the bridge in the 1960s ? at either end to raise it, in order to avoid tree branches, debris etc., from gathering during flood conditions.
