13/133 Bridge immediately NE of
Dartington Lodge


Bridge carrying drive to Dartington Hall (qv) over Bidwell Brook. Probably
mid C19, altered in 1931 by O P Milne limestone rubble with dressed stone
voussoirs to arch, coping stones and terminal piers.
Single span roughly elliptical arch with dressed stone voussoirs and
slightly larger keystone. In 1931 0 P Milne added cambered parapets with
dressed stone coping sept out of the ends to circular terminal piers like a
scroll on plan; the parapets at the north end extend further giving the
parapets an asymmetrical curved profile; the piers at the south end have
cast cement caps, the south west in the farm of another holding a fish and
the south east a face cub. The parapets are a C20 addition. A painting
dated 1883 in the possession of the occupier of Dartington Lodge (qv) shows
the lodge and the bridge without the parapets and terminal piers.
