The old bow bridge is one of the earliest constructions in Freedonia. It spans the hitherto uncrossed lake south of spawn, and historically provided the only safely passable route south. At this point, 200 blocks from spawn was considered a long distance, however as the world grew outwards, 200 blocks from spawn came to seem very close indeed.

Now maintained as a historical artefact, it is a testament to its skilled engineering that it still stands despite receiving minimal maintenance.
