Guelph Covered Bridge

Officially, Ontario has just one covered bridge, which can be found in West Montrose. But the official count fails to include the 144-foot lattice-covered walking bridge that spans the convergence of the Eramosa and Speed Rivers in Guelph. 

In 1992, 400 volunteers from the Timber Framers’ Guild raised the bridge by hand. It was designed in the style of Ithiel Town’s patent from the 1880s, and is notable for the amount of light it allows into the interior. While the supports have metal bars and bolts, the interior sports handmade wooden dowels.
