Documentary Evidence


In the mid 17th century a bridge crossed the Pow Burn at the east end of the town to give access to the main street. In 1648 Newcastle Trinity House contributed to the building of a bridge over the runner at the Low Lights. Post Medieval maps do not show this bridge but it does appear on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan of the area.
