SS 2006 - 2106 BUDE-STRATTON THE STRAND, BUDE

11/219 Nanny Moore's Bridge -

GV II

Packhorse and cart bridge across the River Neet. C18 or earlier. Stone rubble.

3-span bridge with segmental arches with keystones and cutwaters on both sides.

Bridge completed on south by cantilevered bridge over channel to allow passage of boats. No parapets. Nanny Moore's Bridge leads to the site of Efford Mill, the tidemill built in the late C16 by the Arundells of Trerice. A "passe" over the river at Efford Hill is mentioned in a contemporary account of the Battle of Stamford Hill in 1643, but this may refer to a ford. An C18 watercolour illustrates the bridge and pontoon. The bridge was formerly known as Bude Bridge and renamed in the C19 after a dipper who lived in a nearby cottage. Rennie Bere and Brian Dudley Stamp, The Book of Stratton and Bude (1980).
