11/219 Nanny Moore's Bridge


Packhorse and cart bridge across the River Neet. C18 or earlier. Stone rubble.
3-span bridge with segmental arches with keystones and cutwaters on both sides.
Bridge completed on south by cantilevered bridge over channel to allow passage of
boats. No parapets. Nanny Moore's Bridge leads to the site of Efford Mill, the
tidemill built in the late C16 by the Arundells of Trerice. A "passe" over the
river at Efford Hill is mentioned in a contemporary account of the Battle of
Stamford Hill in 1643, but this may refer to a ford. An C18 watercolour
illustrates the bridge and pontoon. The bridge was formerly known as Bude Bridge
and renamed in the C19 after a dipper who lived in a nearby cottage. Rennie Bere
and Brian Dudley Stamp, The Book of Stratton and Bude (1980).
