New Hampshire Covered Bridges
New Hampshire has long been known for its covered bridges. Approximately 50 are still standing, several are still in use. The bridge pictured here is the Ashuelot Bridge in Winchester. It was built in 1864 for the sum of $4,650 and is 169 feet long.

The Bath Bridge is a popular tour bus stop and is located just off the town square in Bath. A handful of small shops are nearby, and if you are lucky, the Congregational Church will have thier foyer open with all manner of home made baked goods available.
The Swiftwater Bridge is only 15 minutes away from the Bath Bridge making it and easy 2 for 1 stop. Ample parking is available on the bridge's far side on the left and beautiful oversized rocks in the river beckon to those with nimble feet.
Also nearby is the Haverhill Bridge. Its closed now, but still open to foot traffic. Don't let that encourage you though - while its obvious they have been making some repairs, the enclosed bridge sidewalk felt anything BUT safe under our feet. This bridge is worth a visit though. The river downstream, opposite the new Raymond S. Burton Bridge, is stunning!
At less than 35', the Prentiss Bridge, in Langdon, is the shortest covered bridge in NH. Its the 3rd bridge that has occupied this site. The first was built in the 1700's for 6 British pounds!
