The situation occurred when a dam was built in the 1940s to create the Rożnowskie Lake, causing the waters of the growing reservoir to absorb surrounding fields and roads, cutting off the Stachów farm and forcing him to use the road through the neighbors' lands.
Unfortunately, as is often the case, neighborly kindness can be capricious and one day, after an argument, the neighbors blocked him from carrying his crops to the market. At first he crossed the lake by boat. But in 1968, he decided to build a bridge 13 m high, 7.5 m wide and 20 m long over a ravine of a mountain stream that would make him independent of the whims of his neighbors.
The bridge was not harmed a bit by the flood of 1999, when the swollen water filled almost the entire, three-meter high barrel vault under the bridge. Stach had no experience in building, but his bridge withstood.
