"However, these brothers were learned in the magical arts, and so they simply waved their wands and made a bridge appear across the treacherous water."
The Tales of Beedle the Bard [src]

The Bridge-conjuring spell (incantation unknown) was a transfiguration spell used to conjure and create a bridge out of thin air.

History

This spell was used by Ignotus, Antioch and Cadmus Peverell in The Tale of the Three Brothers to create a bridge over a treacherous river allowing them all to walk across safely, a bridge upon which they met Death.[1]

Behind the scenes

It is unknown if the spell truly exists, or if Beedle the Bard simply invented it for his fairy tale.
