The date is correct, this is a rebuilt one. The original 1867 bridge was destroyed by an overweight truck in 1980.

This is about as close as you could get to the original as possible though, it was built to the speicifications of the original by a local bridgewright Arnold Graton, who constructed his bridges in the exact fashion as they would have been historically (down to building them on the ground and dragging them into position by Oxen).

Is this 1982 date right or is this a rebuilt bridge?
