The third bridge that I visited here in Cornish was the Blow-Me-Down Bridge. It gets its name because it spans a deep gorge on the Blow-Me-Down Brook.
It was a little more challenging to photograph. The steepness of the gorge below and the heavy brush growth made it too risky to try to go down into the gorge to make images from the side showing the span of the bridge.
The property owner on one side of the bridge dissuaded photographers with one sign that said “no parking” and another that said trespassers would be shot and those that survived would be shot again. So much for Yankee hospitality. I ended up parking in some weeds on the other side of the bridge.
There is not a lot of history noted about this bridge. It was built in 1877 for $528 and is another bridge built by James Tasker.
