1/146 Drakeford Bridge
Bridge over river Bovey. 1684 or earlier, widened 1809 by James Green, county
surveyor. Granite. Consists of a single elliptical arch. The downstream side of
this arch, which seems to belong to the 1684 build, has fairly roughly-shaped
voussoirs. Above it, corbelled out slightly, the parapet is of granite rubble
having a coping with rounded top. On its inner face, which is of granite ashlar,
is a worn granite tablet which seems to read : 'This 1684 bridge was repaired
the....'. The upstream arch seems to belong to the 1809 widening; its voussoirs
being better cut; its parapet is similar to that on the downstream side, faced
with granite ashlar only towards the road.
