1/146 Drakeford Bridge - 23.8.55 - II

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.
