Statement of Interest

Queen Mary's Bridge supposedly takes it name from the tradition that Mary Queen of Scots crossed it during her royal progress in 1563. The Bridge is actually called "Penkill Old Bridge" on the OS Map of 1849. The parapets of the bridge were swept away in a flood in circa 1960.
