SX85SW Poor Bridge
Bridge carrying track over stream. Circa early to mid C19. Slate rubble with
dressed slate arch ring. Single span bridge with a low semented slightly
skewed arch. Rough pitched slate capping to the parapets which are splayed

Tuckenhay, is a tributary of the River Dart. It is situated on the parish
boundary of Cornworthy and Dittisham.
