ASHPRINGTON
SX85NW TUCKENHAY
6/60 Tuckenhay Bridge

II

Road bridge over a stream known as River Wash. Probably C17 widened in circa
early to mid C19. Stone rubble.
The old bridge on the south upstream side has a single span segmented arch of
finely dressed and chamfered slate voussoirs springing from slate imposts.
The parapet and the abutment to the east seem to have been rebuilt when the
bridge was widened in early to mid C19 on the north downstream side. This
side has a segmented arch with dressed limestone voussoirs springing from
vertical jambs.
The stone rubble parapets have roughly dressed stone coping and are swept out
at the west end; the north parapet continues about 15 metres to the north
west.
Tuckenhay bridge is not mentioned in Henderson's and Jervoise's 'Old Devon
Bridges'.
