3/11 Chagford Bridge 22.2.67 - II*

Road bridge over River Teign. C16 or C17. Voussoirs and cutwaters of granite ashlar, the rest of granite stone rubble. The 3 arches of the bridge are plain vaults rising to barely perceptable points and have soffit-chamfered hoodmoulds over the voussoirs. The centre arch is a little taller than the others. The cutwaters are relatively narrow. They have pointed ends which are carried up to the parapet providing small refuges. Also the abutments are chamfered back to the river banks and these too rise to the parapet. There is a band of dressed stone at road level which ramps to the centre. The parapet has plain flat coping. This is a very attractive bridge. There was a bridge mentioned here in 1224 and a bridge, possibly this one, was repaired by the parish between 1560-92. If it is C16 it would be the one mentioned by Leland. Scheduled Ancient Monument 156. Source: Devon SMR.
