New Hampshie Covered Bridges – Lyme’s Own Edgell Covered Bridge

Edgell Covered Bridge

EDgell Covered Bridge, River Road, Lyme, NH

Covered bridges are placed throughout the state of New Hampshire.  “Kissing Bridges” as some affectionately call them are unique unto themselves.  They can reflect the town that they reside in, the artist or architect that designed them, and even the period that they were built in.  A picturesque New England Covered Bridge is more than just beautiful, covered bridges are practical and why our forefathers built them.  They provide a great place to walk in from the sun, to hide from the rain and to look down at the water that passes below.  Covered bridges also protect the structure from the harsh northern New England winters.  Breakfast on the Connecticut is less than a mile from the Edgell Covered Bridge that spans Clay Brook which feeds into the Connecticut River.  You can reach it in one of two ways – put on those sneakers and take a walk to the bridge and back.  What a great way to get in some exercise before breakfast!  Or, put on those sneakers and take out one of or canoes paddling to the bridge – you can go under the bridge and explore the large pools of water that make up Clay Brook.  And don’t forget to bestow that kiss on your significant other!  For many years we had our children convinced that the horn of the car would sound every time we passed through a covered bridge – they eventually discovered the slight of hand but they asked us to continue with their children.  Covered bridges are magical places.
