The High Bridge
We took advantage of the perfect Spring weather to combine a motorcycle ride and some drone flying. Leaving Richmond, we headed out to Farmville to check out the High Bridge – an old train trestle spanning the Appomattox River. The historic structure has been converted into a pedestrian bridge allowing for fantastic views of the river and the surrounding forests.
We were lucky to come on a weekday so there only a few other visitors (most of which make an appearance in the video). On weekends, the trail is popular for hikers, bicyclists and even folks with their horses.
The majestic High Bridge, which is more than 2,400 feet long and 160 feet above the Appomattox River is the centerpiece of High Bridge State Park. The park, located outside Farmville, Virginia is a multi-use trail ideally suited for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. It is the longest recreational bridge in Virginia and among the longest in the United States. High Bridge, a Virginia Historic Landmark, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The bridge itself was completed in 1852 and the full line was completed in 1854. The High Bridge's twenty piers contained almost four million bricks. It supported a wooden superstructure with a pedestrian walkway beside the rail line, along with an adjacent wagon bridge which would ultimately play a pivotal role in the outcome of the Civil War.
The High Bridge played a key role during Confederate General Robert E. Lee's final retreat from Petersburg in the last days of the War. The Battle of High Bridge took place there on April 6–7, 1865. During the Civil War, both Union and Confederate forces attempted to destroy the bridge. The Confederates succeeded in setting the bridge on fire on April 6, 1865, to prevent its crossing by the Union.
After the Battle of High Bridge and his surrender at Appomattox, Robert E. Lee told the men who had destroyed the bridge to go home and start its rebuilding. Engineers began building temporary spans to replace those that had been destroyed. The South Side Rail Road company eventually finished the work and rail traffic resumed in September 1865.
Rebuilt after the Civil War to its former dimensions, the 21-span structure was 2,400 feet long at a maximum height of 160 feet above the Appomattox River Valley. It is currently unusable for traffic. By 2005 its then-owner, Norfolk Southern, had abandoned the corridor, subsequently giving 33 miles of the line to the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation. High Bridge opened to the public on April 6, 2012, the 147th anniversary of the Battle of High Bridge.
