1970’s Milheugh Bridge

 

1970s Milheugh Bridge by Gordon Cook wmHow beautiful the Milheugh Bridge looked in this photo from nearly 45 years ago. Pictured in the 1970’s, following a clean up, the stonework looks tidy, clean and of course was still relatively new.

This recognisable scene for many hasn’t changed too much over the years. The bridge may be older, covered in graffiti, but the river bank and those flat stone are still there, offering a great place for a spot of fishing.

Hopefully this is the first time you’ve seen this image, so thanks to Gordon Cook for sharing.

Whats your memories of Milheugh bridge?
