Gattonside and Melrose Area

Our thanks goes to Bruce and Beth Hopkirk of Tucson, Arizona, for the photos in this section.

  This is the footbridge between Gattonside and Melrose, which was built in 1826 to cross the River Tweed.  It was refurbished in 1991.  The forebearers of the USA and New Zealand Hopkirk's would have crossed this bridge.

This is a close-up of the footbridge, from the Gattonside side, looking back at Melrose.
