Somerset Bridge is located at the western part of Bermuda in Sandys parish. It actually connects the main island with Somerset island. This is the world’s smallest drawbridge. Which means that it opens up from the middle allowing the ships to pass by. Somerset bridge was originally constructed way back in 1620. In those days, whenever a small ship required to pass through, the bridge used to be opened using a manual crankshaft. In 20th century, Somerset bridge went through some major renovation, but much of it’s basic constructs have been retained even now. Presently the bridge has cantilever based two half spans. An 18-inch wide timber is placed between the spans to bridge the gap between the two. You can clearly see the timber piece in the picture below. Whenever a sail boat is required to go under the bridge, this timber piece is only removed to allow just the mast of the boat to pass through.
