  • A real piece of the areas history
  • Really interesting piece of history, especially when you think about the tools, or lack of, that they had when they made the bridge. The humpback design is interesting, possibly to give it more strength. Would definitely recommend a trip to see it, however you can only look at it, you are unable to go onto the bridge as it is old, really old.
