Laugh well done

Questor,
Nice job figuring this one out and with almost no clues at all.
How do you do it?

Speaking of Bulls Bridge
Coming from the Rt-7 side, cross the bride, go maybe 1/4 mile and take the first right up along the west side of the river thru the indian reservation - scenic ride along the riverbank. Behave yourself at the beginning since it's also part of the Appalachian trail and there's frequently hikers around.

And if you're at the West Cornwall Bridge
Coming from the Rt-7 side, cross the bridge, ignore the first immediate left (short dead end) and take the second left just up the hill (River Road) for another interesting ride up along the river east bank this time.

Laugh Beckley furnace

Here is your Hints

The Beckley Blast Furnace was one of three blast furnaces in operation along the Blackberry River during the period 1832-1923.
Beckley Furnace was built in 1847 by John Adam Beckley, great-grandson of Esquire Samuel Forbes and grandson of John Adam, Jr., the founders of the Forbes & Adam Iron Company. It was acquired by the Barnum & Richardson Company in 1858
Beckley Furnace produced pig iron until the winter of 1918-19.
Constructed of locally quarried marble, the furnace was originally thirty-two feet in height and thirty feet square at the base. Later, after it was acquired by the Barnum Richardson Company, the height was raised to forty feet making it one of the largest of forty-three blast furnaces in the Salisbury Iron District.
In April 1896, fire destroyed many of the wood buildings at Beckley. When the operation was put back in blast in 1898, brick had replaced wood in the support structures near the furnace, particularly those above the charging wall.
In the winter of 1919, with World War I over along with a resultant decline in demand for iron, the Beckley Furnace was finally closed. After the closing of the Beckley Furnace, the buildings and stack slowly deteriorated. During World War II the site was extensively scavenged for scrap metal for the war effort, and even for bricks.
Then, in 1946, Civil Engineer Charles Rufus Harte recognized the historic importance of Beckley Furnace, and developed a plan for state purchase and preservation of Beckley. In the process the Beckley Furnace was designated as Connecticut's sole official state Industrial Monument and in 1978 Beckley was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.



Sorry for the shitty photo. I Hope my little hint makes up for it.

Why didn't you drive a couple more miles and get some batteries at the Citgo then pop over Virrerids for a quick #2 with a coke?

I was at that furnace yesterday.
I could go post a "tag" today, but I don't have a really good picture.

Perhaps I'll let someone else have this one.
Perhaps not...
