Extra Info
Teviot Bridge

The Teviot rises in the rounded hills of Roxburghshire and flows northeastward through its lovely valley, picking up tributaries as it goes along. The river begins a few miles above Teviothead, a village where the reiver Johnny Armstrong was hanged. At Hawick the Teviot is joined by Slitrig Burn and at Bonjedward, beyond Jedburgh, the Teviot meets Jed Water. It is at Kelso that the Teviot and the Tweed join to flow on to Berwick and the North Sea. There are two bridges in Kelso. John Rennie’s five arch model for London Bridge was built in 1803 to span the Tweed. Teviot Bridge crosses the Teviot to the west of the town of Kelso.
