Swiss timber bridges

I'm preparing various new posts, but while that happens, I thought I'd post a link to a great website I stumbled across: Swiss timber bridges. Written by Werner Minder, this is a catalogue of some 1,481 timber spans in Switzerland, with plenty of pictures.

Unsurprisingly the website majors on covered wooden bridges, some 520 of them, but has space for structures as varied as suspension bridges, timber falsework, and even a tiny bridge for rabbits. It's the kind of detail-obsessed labour-of-love that I love finding on the internet.
