Great old covered bridge

The Cornish- Windsor covered bridge connects Vermont and New Hampshire over the Connecticut River. It is over 400 feet long. We found it very interesting. .

Found this place by accident because of a sign as we were leaving harpoon brewery (which is a must stop) and it is truly spectacular over the Connecticut River.

I love covered bridges and this one is the finest example of them all. It is the longest covered wooden bridge in the world and is used daily as a connector between Vermont and NH. The nearest other bridges are about 10 miles north and south.

Amazing covered bridge, the longest 2 span in the world. Unbelievable the things they did with so little in the 1800's, like construct this masterpiece. Easy to find and well worth the trip.

We found this bridge by accident and it's a great side trip. Beautiful views of the Conneticut River.

The end to our travels in Vermont towards Maine. We made a special detour to this bridge. Well worth it. It's beautiful. Great pull off spot for photos on the NH side. :)

Accidentaly we stumbled upon this bridge while doing some research of our roadtrip to New England and Canada. As we were driving from Ben & Jerrys in Waterbury to Boston, MA, we made a detour to see this bridge. We've read that covered bridge is something very typical for New England and we just couldn't leave without seeing one of... More

Rode across the bridge a couple of times to get the full experience. Two way traffic inside the bridge is quite manageable and seems to withstand the daily load. Only understood more recently that covered bridges are covered not for the benefit of the travelers but to protect the wood contraction from the rain water which will rot it. This... More

You encounter this bridge suddenly as you travel along the country road and are blown away by the simple beauty of its construction. It takes you right into the past as you drive over the wooden floorboards.

A "gem" to visit during our September visit to Vermont. Among all of the bridges we visited, this was our one of our favorites! The bridge is easy to get to from the center of town. Ample parking area on the eastern side of the bridge. There are numerous photo ops of the bridge. Stop by the Windsor Diner for... More
