4/96 Staverton Bridge


- 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.
