Nine Bridges

Over the last nine years I have had the honour of working with various wallers from other countries as well as students and members with Dry Stone Walling Across Canada (formerly Dry Stone Wall Association of Canada) and together we have built a total of nine dry stone bridges in Canada now. 

Here they are in chronological order. 

Springdale Bridge, Port Hope, 2004

Cornish Hollow Bridge, Cobourg, Ontario, 2005

Hubb Creek Bridge, Wellington, Ontario, 2006

Bruce Bridge, Coldsprings, Ontario, 2007

MacDougal Bridge, Russell, Ontario, 2008

Algonquin College Student's Bridge,  Perth, Ontario 2009

Kay's Bridge Landon Bay Centre 2010

Little Long Lake Bridge, Sydenham, Ontario, 2011

Monarch Bridge, Alderville, Ontario, 2012

Our tenth bridge will be a ten foot, wide 45 foot long double-arch bridge built this October during the Canadian Thanksgiving 'Festival of Stone' at St Marthe, Quebec.

I will be giving a presentation in Asheville, North Carolina about these nine bridges (and how they were constructed ) the afternoon of Friday, September 7th at the Stone Foundation's annual Rocknocker's Symposium headed up by Tomas Lipps.
