The Claycomb Covered Bridge

This bridge, which stands at the entrance to Old Bedford Village, just north of Bedford, was built in 1880. It was built in Reynoldsdale and was moved to its present location in 1975. It is a burr truss design which has been reinforced with steel to support bus traffic that frequents Old Bedford Village.

The structure is unpainted. County owned.



The roof is constructed of Cedar shakes and the deck consists of crossboard planks. It sits on poured concrete abutments. The sides are totally enclosed
