Located roughly 5-6 miles (about 9-10 kilometers) south of the center of Sussex, New Brunswick is the MacFarlane Covered Bridge. Spanning 63 feet (about 19 meters) over Wards Creek, it is one of the shortest covered bridges in Kings County, New Brunswick. Also known as Wards Creek Covered Bridge # 2, the bridge was built in 1909 using a Howe truss design that is commonplace in covered bridge construction throughout New Brunswick.
The MacFarlane Covered Bridge is easily accessible from NB 111 on Wards Creek Road, which you can also take into downtown Sussex. When I visited in early May 2022, it looked like the covered bridge had recently been given new siding, as the wood hadn't yet turned into the gray color you'll find at many covered bridges around the province. Headache bars to prevent over height vehicles from passing through the covered bridge can also be found near each end of the covered bridge.
