Statement of Interest

Probably the bridge referred to in THE STATISTICAL ACCOUNT of

1792 as the bridge commissioned by Miss Brodie of Lethen and

Coulmony "about a mile below her house" (Coulmony) in that

year. "A most elegant arch, 72' wide... (which) within less

than a month after it was passable this useful bridge gave way

and fell into the river". Re-built shortly afterwards. Also in Edinkillie Parish, Moray.
