    Found some sort of chamber in the woods

    So I was exploring an area where there apparently used to be a covered bridge. Lo and behold, I stumbled upon this site. The odd thing is that there is a concrete slab atop it while the bricks are clearly made of clay. It seems as if someone had tried to cover this opening at some point. Anyone have an idea what it might have been? I'm thinking an old cellar or underground chamber of some sort. Thanks!

    Did you find any remnants of the covered bridge? Are there any other building remains around.

    I was going to say it could be a dolmen but not if clay and concrete were used.

    What's a dolmen?
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    That's awesome. Be careful. Looks like a place the Blair Witch would hang out...

    We have those in New England. Some people think they were native American, but the more traditional explanation is food storage / root cellar as someone had already mentioned. Though ours have flat fieldstone walls and a large flat rock slab on top. Some fringe folks think they were built by Vikings, celts or others who they believe visited the us in ancient times. Might be worth checking in with your local historical societies ( after you md the sure of course!!).

    Let us know if you find anything.

    According to the Brother's Grimm, trolls lived under bridges. Perhaps the entrance to his lair?

    How deep does it go? Possible it's a fireplace?

    Perhaps -- that's what I thought at first. Looking closely though, they seemed to be gray clay bricks, though I am not the best judge of these things. I think I'll video tape my next trip out there so that I can give a better view.

    To answer some of the other posts: The concrete seems to be unrelated to the original structure as if someone sealed the hole off at a later date. As for the bridge remains, there were none that explicitly screamed bridge. However, I found another chamber/foundation of sorts that had some pipes in it. I'll upload pics of that too once I have access to my camera again. Thanks for the posts so far!

    That's very cool! What's the slope of the land? Could it be drainage related somehow? Keep us posted please!

    I see these all over my area. They are made at the mouth of a spring, and almost always lined with masonary. Is the structure in a creekbed or a hollow or ravine?
