- Bridge and section of Haytor
Granite Tramway crossing Bovey
- Pottery Leat about 250 metres
south-east of Chapple Farm
Bridge and section of track. 1820s. Granite. Bridge has plain rubble abutments
supporting a series of pieces of roughly dressed granite about 1 metre above the
leat. Upon the bridge and extending at either side of it is a section of granite
trackway about 6 metres long. About 3 metres to the north is a further section
about 4 metres long. The north-eastern side of the trackway, nearest the road, is
almost completely exposed, but most of the south-western side is covered with
earth. The Granite Tramway was opened in 1820 for horse-drawn wagons carrying
granite from Haytor quarries to the Stover canal, whence it was taken by barge to
the port of Teignmouth.
