The Tournament Bridge - Kilwinning

Eglinton Tournament Bridge, Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, Scotland

A few views of the restored Tournament Bridge.

The Tournament Bridge in Eglinton Park was designed around 1811 by David Hamilton - a well-respected and successful Glasgow architect - and was (probably) the site of the last medieval tournament held in Great Britain, in 1839.
