Description 

Over the years, people have thought this bridge may be haunted. Most of the explanations are almost the same to those of another very similar bridge in Avon, which is also thought to be haunted. No one really knows which one is haunted, or if either one actually is haunted.

This bridge, along with an abutment of the 'Big Four - Twin Bridges', & the 'Twin Bridges', which are listed here in Bridge Hunter, are all included in one 'Twin Bridges' listing in the NRHP (see Landmark Hunter).
