There is something historical and intriguing about drawbridges. Whether over a castle mote or a river there is something fascinating about them. This one at Woods Hole seems a throw back. Located on Water Street it spans the channel between Eel Pond and Great Harbor....More

The likelyhood of seeing it work probably goes way up in the summer- we did not see it We saw it walking around Woods Hole trying to get info about the Institute. Nothing special unless you have never seen one.

It's not something to write home about, but if you've never seen a drawbridge before you should take the time to view it.

It's part of the town's past and present -- good for everyone to see the drawbridge in action and realize its importance to the business of a seaside town.

This drawbridge is very interesting. I go and visit as often as I can. I wish I lived in Woods Hole. I love it.

Beautiful water, boats and bridge. Fun to watch and see the boats pass by. It's not often to see such a small drawbridge these days. It was such a treat - if you are in the area take the time to view it.

The drawbridge opens periodically to allow boats to pass between Eel Pond and Vineyard Sound. Obviously, you will be able to see the drawbridge in operation during the boating season. It is fun to see once or twice, but it's just a drawbridge.

While driving around Falmuth/Woods Hole, we were the first car stopped by the bridge when it opened up. I had never seen a bridge do this so it was a nice sight to see during our visit. An interesting sight to see!
