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
out over the abutments. It appears to be a single phase bridge which either
replaced an earlier bridge or a ford.
The stream, known as River Wash, which flows into Dittisham Mill Creed at
Tuckenhay, is a tributary of the River Dart. It is situated on the parish
boundary of Cornworthy and Dittisham.
