Geocache Description:

Le Pont de Bois Couvert

La France ayant une tradition bien établie de construction de ponts en maçonnerie (pierre puis béton) et en métal, l'emploi du bois était réservé aux ouvrages temporaires ou aux ponceaux. Il n'existe donc qu'un seul pont en bois couvert ancien, sur la commune de Le Pont-Chrétien-Chabenet dans l'Indre. C'était un pont de service établi sur la Bouzanne à l'occasion de la construction d'un viaduc ferroviaire au milieu du XIXe siècle. Il fut rapidement doublé par un pont routier sans être démoli et est resté utilisé pour un trafic agricole modeste. Il a été restauré récemment et est désormais réservé aux piétons.
Merci de remplacer la cache exactement où elle était !

France had a long tradition of building bridges of masonry (stone and concrete) and metal, the use of wood was reserved for temporary structures or culverts. So there is only one old covered wooden bridge, in the commune of Le Pont-Chrétien-Chabenet in Indre. It was a bridge established in connection with the construction of a railway viaduct in the middle of the nineteenth century. It was soon superceded by a road bridge without being demolished and remained used for modest agricultural traffic. It has been recently restored and is now reserved for pedestrians.
Please ensure that you place the cache back in exactly the same place. Thank you.
