Bridges On The Coquet


"On the 28th August, 1901, Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Forster, who with their children had been spending some weeks at Carlcroft, in Upper Coquetdale, gave house-warming to the shepherds of the district"

Quoted in 'Upper Coquetdale. David Dippie Dixon. 1903.

This footbridge is just off the road down the slope to the river where a wooden footbridge crosses. The Carshope Plantation lies opposite on the south bank.

The river soon turns again to the south-west. Few people from outside the valley visit here, apart from military personnel, but a few cars will be seen carrying walkers or those whose curiosity takes them to the more remote parts of Northumberland.
