MORETONHAMSTEAD SX 78 NW 1/86 Fingle Bridge 23.8.55 II*

Road bridge over the River Teign. C16 or C17. Coursed blocks of massive granite ashlar tending to granite stone rubble higher up, granite ashlar voussoirs and coping. The 3 segmental arches spring from vertical abutments and piers. The piers have pointed cutwaters which rise to the parapet where they provide refuges. There is no stringcourse or terminal piers. The stone rubble parapet has ashlar coping stones with rounded tops. The carriageway is narrow and ramps towards the middle. This well-preserved early bridge is set in an attrative wooded Dartmoor valley. Indeed it is one of the most popular "beauty spots" in the area.
