Nelson Hollow Covered Bridge: Northumberland County

No longer in service, this covered bridge at Nelson Hollow, just 4 km outside of Doaktown, is the oldest covered bridge in New Brunswick and the only one remaining in Northumberland County. Also known as the Mill Brook #5, this covered bridge traverses Bett's Mill Brook.
On a sign posted over the entrance to the bridge is the warning:
$20 fine for Driving on This Bridge Faster Than a Walk

The Nelson Hollow Covered Bridge has a cottage style roof as does the covered bridge at Turtle Creek in Albert County. These two covered bridges are the only ones in New Brunswick with this style of roof. The composite photo above shows the Turtle Creek bridge on the left and the Nelson Hollow one on the right.
