This is the Historic Goulburn River Bridge at Seymour. The first bridge over the Goulburn was built by Patrick Hanna in 1862-63. It was a low level bridge and Hanna had a toll gate at the foot of Manse Hill until 1867 when it was purchased by the Government and tolls were collected for the Roads Board until 1873.
A new bridge was constructed in 1892 and was considerably strengthened during the Second World War to carry heavy army vehicles and equipment. In 1967 a new bridge was built across the Goulburn as the Hume Highway crossing was moved upstream The old bridge continued to serve as the crossingfor traffic to Puckapunyal until the building of the Hume Freeway in 1982. Seymour has a coles, target, millers, aldi, art and craft shops, etc. Tea Rooms. This bridge is at Northwood. Chris's Timber looks like a Men's Shed.
