The Leaderfoot Viaduct

Passing at speed along the A68 from Melrose to Lauder it is easy to miss the Leaderfoot Viaduct which is an impressive bridge built over the River Tweed in 1863.  Sadly it no longer carries rail traffic having closed in 1965 but the viaduct is now maintained by Historic Scotland and is a testimony to Victorian enterprise and skill.
