A lovely walk on Dartmoor. There is parking near to the post office/ shop and then across the road to the two bridges. The clapper bridge is apparently the best preserved stone clapper bridge in the area. There are various walks around the area which...More
A lot of the pictures for this listing are of the new bridge. The new bridge is from the 1800s. The Clapper Bridge is from medieval; times and was originally built to replace stepping stones. There is a nice trail along the river from the...More

Apparently there has been some form of bridge in place for aeons. I agree with the above comment.... probably 13th or 14th century for the stones there now. And some times the stones were washed away by bad storms and floods and then put back in place. We need someone who lives near these to give a more detailed and more accurate commentary though. The area of the clapper bridge is truly beautiful and there are paths where you can take walks. I'd wear hiking boots though or sturdy shoes as some areas of the paths are muddy. And you might need to jump a puddle or two if past weather has been inclement. Enjoy!
