Leaving Tamworth in the rear view mirror

We’re now leaving Tamworth behind us as my day is winding down. I’m heading toward the Durgin covered bridge. Here is our goal to get you motivated.

We’re going to make this one simple but when reading the Gazetteer I have to admit it didn’t seem that way. We continued up Cleveland road to Brown hill road to Durgin road to Durgin bridge road and when you get to the bottom of the hill, you will find the Durgin covered bridge.

If you find any of these roads you can follow them into the Durgin covered bridge. The bridge lies at the intersection of Durgin bridge road, bridge view road, River road, Fellows hill road, and Foss flats road.

Shooting info for the Durgin covered bridge

It’s still the 14th of October 2015 and the insane thing is it’s only 10:57AM when I took the first shot looking down the hill at the covered bridge.(seen at right)  The weather is partly sunny/overcast so I’m not seeing terribly contrasty images.

I worked my way around from the Northern end to the southern end and since the side view was easy to get to, I went along the rivers edge and balanced on some rocks to get the wide angle shot as you see it above.

The colors may  have been peak to something past peak because the winds have been whipping through this valley and as the images show there are many piles of leaves on the roadside.

There are several spots on both sides of the bridge to park you car safely and in general I could hear when a car was coming down the dirt roads that lead to the bridge.


I left the Durgin covered bridge on the Southern side and made a right onto Fellows Hill road. When you come to White face Rd. make a left (this is also 113A) and when you see Route 113 pass on the left be ready to pull over.

The North Sandwich store will be on your right (slight pun as this is in North Sandwich… get it?) 🙂

I got a burger here and they make a few different things here. I sat down at a big trestle table with several other folks as I waited for my burger. Nothing fancy here just good food and good people.

Here is the map and today we’ll say good bye till next week when this trip continues into Center Sandwich. Just the lettered section today in the western part of the map is today’s route.
