Bridge Documentation

This bridge carries a private drive which provides access to a field. The bridge is a design that is so unexpected and so unusual, that without knowing its history, it is impossible not to be suspicious that some part of it is fake. However, the bridge appears to be a cast iron deck arch, a structure type common in the Great Britain in the 19th Century. Only a tiny number were ever known to be built in the United States and even less remain intact today. It is not known what the history of this bridge is. On old stone abutments, the bridge appears to be genuinely old and not a replica of any kind (as one might be suspicious of), nor does it appear to have been moved here from a different location (like England) in any recent period in history. The bridge has ornate metal railings on the wooden deck.

Assuming the bridge is a genuinely old cast iron arch bridge as it appears to be, this is a bridge with extremely high historic significance, despite its tiny size.

It is not known who owns this bridge or what its history is. Anyone with information on this bridge please contact us.
