Description
The bridge at Glenorchy crossed an arm of the Sixteen Mile Creek at 4th Line just below the Lower Baseline Rd., Halton County. The site is particularly remembered for the old school which had been built nearby in the river floodplain - people remember the river ice pushing up against the school, and for the collapse of the seventy year old bridge in 1964 when a truck with a heavy load of potatoes tried to drive over it.

Glenorchy Bridge, Circa 1900


The bridge at Glenorchy crossed an arm of the Sixteen Mile Creek at 4th Line just below the Lower Baseline Rd., Halton County. The site is particularly remembered for the old school which had been built nearby in the river floodplain - people remember the river ice pushing up against the school, and for the collapse of the seventy year old bridge in 1964 when a truck with a heavy load of potatoes tried to drive over it.
