The Craigellachie bridge, over the River Spey at Craigellachie, Banffshire, was originally designed and constructed in cast iron by Thomas Telford in 1814-15. It was reconstructed in 1963-64 to make it capable of carrying modern traffic not greater than 14 tons the bridge, it was essential to keep as much of the original character
in weight. In addition, it was recognized that, in reconstructing as possible; when a new bridge is constructed nearby, the cast-iron bridge is to be restored to a condition which will enable it to be retained for as long as possible as a monument to Thomas Telford and his work.
