Capelsie Mill Bridge

Map 

Description 

All I can see, as evidence of a bridge here is the stone piling, in the middle of the river, above what appears to be a dam, from the aerial view. As there is only one support, I'm guessing it was another through truss, similar to the Thicketty Bridge, down the river.

If you are Google mapping this location, there is a nice panoramic picture that views from the base of the dam, and there are three visible pillars that would have supported what would have either been a long truss or covered bridge.
