SX 76 SE STAVERTON

4/96 Staverton Bridge

9.2.61

- I

Road bridge over River Dart. Built in 1413 although it is said to have been in a state of decay in C17 and therefore there may be some C17 or later repair or rebuilding work. Stone rubble. Seven obtusely pointed arches. The piers have V-shaped cut-waters on both sides with refuges above. The refuge at the north west end is rectangular and measures 5' by 8' low parapets with chamfered granite coping. It is one of the oldest bridges in Devon.
