Sandford Drawbridge - Yarmouth Nova Scotia

Sandford Drawbridge

The community of Sandford is about a 15-minute drive from the town of Yarmouth. Here in Sandford is a unique little fishing community, and one of the main reasons that people like to visit here is to see what is noted to be the smallest drawbridge. This small drawbridge was built so that the fisherman and visitors can cross from one side of the Sandford wharf system to the other without having to travel out to the road and around.

When the boats are not engaged in fishing activities, they are brought in through a narrow channel between the opposite sides of the Sandford wharf system to an inner sanctuary. The small drawbridge allows the boats to pass through to where they will be moored until the next time they go out fishing.

Sandford Drawbridge - Yarmouth Nova Scotia

On both sides of this little harbor of Sandford Nova Scotia are the fishermen's shanties where they go about the work of getting things ready for their next journey, out through the narrow channel, on their way to open waters. From here you can stand in the evening and watch as the sun sets beyond the Bay of Fundy. You can walk along the wharf and smell the fresh salt air, or checkout the fishing boats that are there.

So come and visit this small fishing community Sandford in Yarmouth county, Nova Scotia. I'm sure you will enjoy your visit to the smallest drawbridge.
