I had no idea that this bridge was constructed of stone. When you drive across it, which I have done hundreds of times, you can only see the decking. Since the properties along the creek are privately owned, I've never fished near the bridge. Thanks for those pictures.

Northampton County Bridge #95.

I took some pictures of this bridge today (3/6/2010) and tried to find some info about it online. That brought me here. I thought I'd share the pictures.
