Bridges near "The Gums" Bed & Breakfast, Coromandel Valley, Adelaide


Walking is one of the favourite activities of some of the people who stay at "The Gums" Bed & Breakfast" at Coromandel Valley in the Adelaide Hills.

The Sturt River, really a creek, winds its way through the Coromandel Valley. For people who enjoy walking, they can actually follow the river for quite some distance and cross it over a variety of new and old bridges.
 
Horner's Bridge, Coromandel Valley

One of the old bridges which crosses the Sturt River, Horner's Bridge, is not far from "The Gums" B&B. It's at the bottom of Light Road and Murrays Hill Road/Coromandel Parade.

It was built in 1866 and was named after Nathan Horner, one of the contractors who built the bridge.


The stone work was obviously built to last and the attractive part of the bridge is the way the extra stones were laid on the top of it.

Just one of the historic parts of the valley to explore when staying at "The Gums" Bed & Breakfast.
