Bodie Creek Suspension Bridge during construction in 1925

The Bodie Creek Suspension Bridge in the Falkland Islands is said to be the southernmost suspension bridge in the world. It was built in 1925, from a kit fabricated in England by David Rowell & Co., in order to shorten the distance sheep needed to be driven from southern Lafonia to the shearing sheds in Goose Green.

It connected Lafonia with the bulk of East Falkland but was closed in 1997.[1]
