LANCASTER COVERED BRIDGES.

The Willow Creek Covered Bridge.

For a bit of time now, I have gotten a strong urge to continue my interest in the Covered Bridges of Lancaster County. There are a number of them down here, and some are fairly close by to me. I just have to travel a bit, but it’s not really a problem. Others are somewhat further away.

This is the Willow Creek Covered Bridge that is located just off RT30 East in Lancaster County. It spans the Millers Run that is just below the bridge. Built in 1962 by Roy Zimmerman it is only 93ft. long x 15ft. wide. It’s just a small bridge compared to the others in the area. There are much bigger ones.

Another view of the bridge.

Like I stated before, the bridge is right next to RT30 East & West. It is a very, very busy 4 lane highway. Trucks & cars are roaring past me while walking the sidewalk next to the bridge looking for different angles & perspectives to photograph. Some of the cars blew there horn at me, and others hollered “Take my picture!” I just sorta laughed.

Looking inside the Bridge supports.

Almost all of the bridges that I have photographed all have the same kind of supports. It was a common way back then & a proven way of support for the bridge. There is no traffic allowed on the Bridge at all! Not even a Horse & Buggy because of it’s location.

This is where the Bridge gets it’s name.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

      1. Thanks for your comment. This long bridge is located a good 50 some miles away from me. Further than the other ones. I’ll get there soon.

      2. There is another thing about my Horse & Buggy post that I forgot to mention, and that is about the Horse poop & pee on the roads. The Horse poop than can be seen along the roads are called “Road Apples” because of what it looks like. It’s slippery as heck! Stinks too! It should be avoided if you can. The “rubber flap” in the back of the horse is to deflect any poop from getting all over everything!

      3. I also have a pet peeve about horse poop. On the hiking trails in Arizona, there are always signs for people to clean up their dog’s poop on the trail. No such admonition for horses that are also allowed to share the trail. >grin<
