Spent the day at old bedford village and decided to go on the covered bridge tour, only found 2 of the bridges we were looking for. Directions are poor, and signage is almost non existant.

What a great old bridge. Took a drive down to Bedford and remembered this bridge as a kid. And was happy it is still standing.
