Among all the nooks and crannies and all of the little surprises you can find along the quiet southwestern coast of Nova Scotia is the Sandford Drawbridge. Purported to be the world's smallest manually operated draw bridge, the Sandford Drawbridge is located in the small fishing village of Sandford, not far from Yarmouth. The bridge was constructed so fisherman and visitors could cross from one side of the wharf system to the other without having to travel out to the road and around. Boats are brought in through the narrow channel between opposite sides of the wharf in Sandford and the small drawbridge allows the boats to pass through to where they are be moored.
