A Gorgeous Day in Guardbridge

The Old and the New bridges over the Eden

The old bridge or the old Guard Bridge on the right in this pic was ordered to be constructed by Henry Wardlaw the Bishop of St Andrews and was opened 600 years ago this year in 1419 to allow more pilgrims to pay homage to St Andrew. The 'new' Eden bridge is on the left.

Guardbridge Community Garden

Another big THANKS to Helena Simmons from the University's Transitions Team and her volunteers for all their efforts. Shot is of our Community Garden after a clean up in the autumn of 2018.

The New Eden Bridge

The 'New' Eden Bridge opened in 1938 which means of course that the old Guard Bridge was in use for all kinds of traffic for 509 years! 

A Modern Pilgrim's View

During the Middle Ages Guardbridge was a 'statio' or station for an overnight stop for pilgrims going to pay homage to St Andrew. It is believed that this station was postioned in the Seggie estate.Pic is taken from this point looking northwards to the old mill houses and the newer housing at the north end of the village.
