To reach the Kihelkonna borough a ford on the Põduste river close to the fort had to be crossed. The earliest knowledge of a bridge there originates from the year 1650. It was of wood and replaced by a stony one, the Great Bridge, in 1820. It is one of the biggest, longest and oldest stone bridges in Estonia.
