Engineer:   Devon County Council
Description:   Built to replace a 1811 constructed bridge which was destroyed by floods in 1974. Build cost was £100,000 and the steel deck of the new bridge was fabricated by Horseley Bridge and Thomas Piggott Ltd and erected by Carter Horseley Engineers Ltd. It was designed to have a low road surface level allowing a flat approach from either side; it is also hinged to allow one end to be raised to line up with a new road bridge, if it is ever built, over the railway replacing the level crossing.
