Photos of Union Bridge, River Tweed, Horncliffe, Northumberland.
These photos were taken at Union Bridge, one of the Border crossings between England and Scotland over the River Tweed.
The bridge is located on a minor road between Fishwick in Scotland and Horncliffe in Northumberland, a few miles west of Berwick.
When it was opened in 1820 it was the longest iron suspension bridge in the world and still carries light road traffic.
An information plaque on the Scottish side of the river depicts the history and opening of the bridge.
