A super little bridge in the heart of Lorna Doone country, the view standing on the bank slightly downstream of the bridge and looking towards it is, to my mind, superlative. Love it here.

Lovely old bridge on road from Brendon to Porlock, having also crossed the river at Oare. Quiet spot, small amount of parking, but bridge is very narrow.

We always make a stop here when we visit - it is such a beautiful place and the drive from here through Oare to Brendan is breathtaking. The bridge has taken some battering so not sure why vehicles aren't banned and encouraged through the ford.

I enjoyed the walk one evening with my dog while staying at the Culbone Inn. It is a gentle descent down to the bridge with lovely views. A slightly harder climb back up but well worth the effort.
