Guelph Covered Bridge - Royal Recreational Trail

In 1992 400 volunteers from the Timber Framers Guild worked near the confluence of the Eramosa and Speed Rivers building this covered bridge using an 1880's design. There is a video of the " 120' pedestrian lattice-covered bridge over the Speed River in Guelph, Ontario. Dramatic scenes of some 400 people raising by hand the two large side trusses of the bridge, assembling the roof, and then winching and pushing the completed bridge into position over the river. Scenic views of the finished structure."
