Furthermore, heading downstream from the bridge, about 100m, along the trail there, will bring you to the remains of Wrights Mill, an old sawmill and dam, both of which are in complete disrepair. Camptown Road was part of the Old Annapolis Road that was constructed in the 1800s by the British as an overland route from Halifax to Annapolis Royal.
