II*


the description shall be amended to read:

Road bridge over the River Teign. C16 or C17. Coursed blocks of massive granite
ashlar tending to granite stone rubble higher up, granite ashlar voussoirs and
coping. The 3 segmental arches spring from vertical abutments and piers. The
piers have pointed cutwaters which rise to the parapet where they provide
refuges. There is no stringcourse or terminal piers. The stone rubble parapet
has ashlar coping stones with rounded tops. The carriageway is narrow and ramps
towards the middle. This well-preserved early bridge is set in an attractive
wooded Dartmoor valley. Indeed it is one of the most popular "beauty spots" in
the area.
