11/304 OLD MILL CREEK
Old Mill Bridge

GV II

Road bridge over stream at the head of Old Mill Creek, a tributary of the
River Dart. Probably late C17 or early C18. Dressed slate rubble. A
small 2-span bridge, the arches widely apart. The main span to the north
is wider and has a 3-centred arch. The smaller south span to the south has
a segmental arch. Both arches have dressed slate arch rings and chamfered
imports at the springing of the arches. The parapets are intact, splayed
out over the north abutment and cranked up at the centre; they have
vertical lacing slates and dressed slate coping stones. There are no
cutwaters.
This is a well-preserved example of a small late C17 or early C18 bridge
attractively situated at the head of a picturesque creek.
