  2. You must have criss-crossed the southern portion of VT. I am not familiar with this bridge but will take a look the next time I am nearby. Rockingham is near an important birding area, “Herrick’s Cove” on the CT River, a stop over for many migrants. It’s a nice image with some fine wood work.

  3. Thanks Chris.

    I was just in Vermont and got a picture of the re-built bridge. Quite a difference.

    Cheers, Harold

  4. Thanks Hilke,

    I visit my daughter every fall for a couple of weeks in Massachusetts, and usually manage a day trip to get a few more covered b ridges in Vermont. Luckily they have a heck of a lot of them.

  5. The Worrall was heavily damaged in the recent flooding, most all of the Lattice tails were sheared off by floating debris, including parts of the Bartonsville, some of which came to a rest just downstream of this bridge.

    I have photos, and will try to figure out how to share some.

  6. Woah. Now that is an old bridge. It’s very interesting to see how this bridge that was clearly made during the 1800’s is still standing, despite the weather and normal wear and tear!
