15/427 Harbertonford Bridge
Road bridge over Harbourne River. Circa mid C19. Slate rubble with local
Devon limestone coping to parapets. Single span segmental arch with slate
voussoirs. Slate string course above at road level. Parapets with chamfered
coping terminate in projecting piers at end of abutments. The string
course breaks forward at terminal piers.
In 1664 Harbertonford Bridge was reported to the Sessions as being in need
of repair. In 1809 James Green, the county surveyor, recorded a stone bridge
with two arches, each 9 feet in span, which has "lately" been widened to
allow a roadway 17 feet in width. (Henderson and Jervoise). The existing
bridge would be a circa mid C19 replacement of that bridge.
