Description 

Off Lower Valley Road close to Somer Stage Road. There is an old car, presumably from the 40's or 50's, that is washed up at the base of the bridge, and is partly buried by the bank and the bridge remains; I'm unsure if this was a vehicle bridge or a horse and wagon bridge, but the abandoned car gives the place a somber air. I discovered this bridge while driving around. I know nothing about it and was unable to find any info online. I would welcome any info if someone has any on this bridge.
