672-1/4/181 Fordton Bridge (that part in
20/05/85 Crediton CP)
Road bridge over the River Yeo. Probably C18, possibly
earlier, widened on the east side in C20. Volcanic ashlar to
arches & cutwaters, otherwise volcanic rubble and some C20
concrete. 4-span bridge of segmental arches with chamfered
double arch rings. Cutwaters beteeen are carried up to parapet
providing refuges. Road and parapet rise to centre. Coping is
steeply weathered on both sides. Bridge widened on east side
in C20 with flat concrete lintels and buttresses although
parapet rebuilt similarly to original.
An earlier Fordton bridge was recorded as being in decay in
1668 (Henderson and Jervoise).
This bridge is also listed in Crediton Hamlets, ref: 7/103.
