Spanning the River Tweed between Berwick-upon-Tweed and Tweedmouth, Northumberland, England, is the Royal Border Bridge which carries the East Coast Main Line from Edinburgh Waverley to London King's Cross.
Mapped out by civil engineer and locomotive designer Robert Stephenson, its 28 brick arches (15 over land, 13 over water) were completed and opened to traffic by Queen Victoria and Albert, Prince Consort in 1850.
Although not officially marking the border crossing between Scotland and England, which is located three miles north, it stands as a symbolic monument, as much as a practical one, nevertheless. 31.05.2014
