I plan to field check tonight. I know the one closest to Bunker Mill Bridge is now a railroad cwr crossing and that is the end of Camp Creek which flows into the English River right here.

I left it blank for details and not a draft so you experts in these details can have at it.

Julie, the original link I'd replied with was an add from the NBI with the incorrect GPS (As is the norm with the earlier NBI entries.) The correct GPS from a more current NBI puts the stringer I've added on Orange Avenue, just east of this bridge.

So when you do your field check, you could check out both and discern which one best fits with the picture, if you wish to do so.

Luke from the description it must be here...south rather than north of Richmond. I shall go that way soon to verify. Found during research for Bunker Mill and the Preserving Historic Roads conference
