Ashland Covered Bridge, also known as Ashland Bridge or Barley Mill Road Covered Bridge, is a covered bridge over Red Clay Creek on Barley Mill Road (near the junction of Brackenville Road) in Ashland in New Castle County, Delaware.

It is a Town lattice truss bridge following a design of Ithiel Town,[2] built about 1860. It is almost identical to the Wooddale Bridge.[1][3]

In 1965, when it was documented in the Historic American Engineering Record survey, it was one of the last three surviving covered bridges in the state of Delaware.[2] It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
