- II

Road bridge over River Avon, at this point a moorland brook. Probably C18, widened
in C19. Granite rubble. single span round arch with dressed granite recessed
arch ring. Parapets with large roughly squared granite coping stones. This bridge
was originally a narrow pack-horse bridge and widened in C19 on the north upstream
side. It was described by the Rev Samuel Rowe as a "single arched moorstone bridge"
but according to James Coreen, the County Surveyor, it was "a very rough bridge
thrown across from two rocks". Reference: C Henderson and E Jervoise. "Old Devon
Bridges", page 24.
