Okay, interesting. It looks like the site may have three listings for two bridges. Perhaps someone in the area could sort that out for us. Mr. Dooley, it looks like you were in the area recently. Could you provide some insight?

It is good to see photographs on here, but this listing should be merged with the other Jolly Mill bridge in the same county.

This is a duplicate listing.
