Creamery Covered Bridge


My husband quickly realised that our time in Vermont was turning into a Covered Bridge tour but stil doesn't understand my obsession with them! I don't really think I can explain it either but they are beautiful structures in their own right!

This is the picturesque Creamery Bridge, Brattleboro VT, built in 1879 but no longer in use except for pedestrians.


The sun was just setting and made for a lovely autumn evening!



The lattice work on the sides is very pretty.


Beautiful!



Thanks for coming by!

  2. It looks very well maintained for an aged bridge like this one. Good to hear that it is still in use by pedestrians.

  4. It is lovely and I totally understand your obsession! I really like the separate walkway on the side of the bridge. I don't think I have ever seen that before.

  7. I believe a former blogger from Brattleboro who went by the name "Brattcat" posted photos of this bridge many years ago. She stopped blogging back in 2013 and I do miss her wit and her lovely Vermont photos. You must have had a fabulous time visiting Vermont and you couldn't have picked a better time of year to do it.

  8. There is so much romance in covered bridges, or is it just me?

  9. They are beautiful, I can understand your fascination with them.
    This reminded me of the bridge on the movie "The bridges of Madison County" with Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep.

  10. ...Christine, you captured some great shots of this one. Without vehicle traffic, this bridge should be around for a long time. Please thank you husband for being so patience. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope to see you back again.

  14. I have never seen one with lattice work on the sides! This one is truly a work of art. And the beautiful zinnias and other flowers around it. I see there is another, narrower passageway. What is that for? Had the wide part been for vehicles, and the other one for walking? Did you walk across? My very favorite is the last picture with the trees and water. Even the roof is artistic. Gorgeous!!! This may have summed up Vermont in one picture.

  16. It is a wonderful one. Great looks and a whole lot of history. I am glad you can see many covered bridges. We live in the area where the Bridges of Madison County was made. It takes us about 40 minutes to get there.

  22. We will be in Killington VT next week, Christine, and already I have a list of place to visit and things to see, including covered bridges and waterfalls. Thankfully, my husband is interested in seeing the same places too.

  26. Mooi Christine, deze diverse opnames van de rode brug. De laatste twee met de herfsttinten zijn voor mij de mooiste.
    Groet kees.

  32. I think covered bridges are one of those things that you either love or you don't. Personally, I do!
