Just stand there and imagine the packhorses carrying the fleeces from Exmoor into Dunster. It's such a cute little bridge over the River Avill and well worth the walk from the lovely village, it's such a special place to be. There's a car park nearby...More

A lovely little bridge and stream in a stunning village-could have stayed here all day just trying to think how many people over the years have walked over it. A little wonder of Dunster.

This bridge has been here for many years and is another site to visit if you are near the water mill. It can be easily accessed from the castle and there is no charge.
