Bridges On The Coquet


"Buckham's Walls. Approached by a footpath along the Buckham's Walls Burn or by a track skirting the north-east flank of Eild Rigg, this elevated cottage was under a mile from the Border"."

'Coquetdale Camera 1912 - 1937. The Photographs of W. P. Collier of Bellingham. Selected by S. F. Owne. 2005.

This bridge is found just east of where the Buckham Walls Burn joins the Coquet. It is another of the concrete bridges built by the Northumberland County Council and bearing a plaque on one parapet with the date of construction.

There is parking nearby and several bridleways and paths wind their way up into the hills from here. The road now makes several up and down climbs towards Makendon and there are good views up and down the increaingly lonely valley.
