3/11 Chagford Bridge
- II*

Road bridge over River Teign. C16 or C17. Voussoirs and cutwaters of granite
ashlar, the rest of granite stone rubble. The 3 arches of the bridge are plain
vaults rising to barely perceptable points and have soffit-chamfered hoodmoulds over
the voussoirs. The centre arch is a little taller than the others. The cutwaters
are relatively narrow. They have pointed ends which are carried up to the parapet
providing small refuges. Also the abutments are chamfered back to the river banks
and these too rise to the parapet. There is a band of dressed stone at road level
which ramps to the centre. The parapet has plain flat coping.
This is a very attractive bridge. There was a bridge mentioned here in 1224 and a
bridge, possibly this one, was repaired by the parish between 1560-92. If it is C16
it would be the one mentioned by Leland.
Scheduled Ancient Monument 156.
