Postbridge is a good place to stop while driving through Dartmoor. The bridges are very scenic. You can buy Cream Tea at the post office.

This is a lovely location to take images of the Clapper Bridge, especially as the sun rises. Any later in the day and you will have quite a few people in your image.

Sure, when you're in the area, it's a must see. But that's what everyone thinks, so don't expect to have it to yourself. On a sunny day, it seems to be a place where people have a picknick, where kids play in the water; quite...More

Stopped here after passing through the park on our hike. Pretty views of the bridge and stream. It was quite busy as there is a national trust office across the street and the bridge is right next to the main thoroughfare. But worth a stop!

I had planned to find this clapper bridge after seeing Rick Steve's video on England. It was better than expected. The clapper bridge is parallel to and ~100 feet from the quaint narrow stone bridge over the creek that auto traffic now uses. It is...More

Take a walk on dartmoor and include this bridge in your walk a really interesting spot. Walk on a historic crossing and experience the beauty of Dartmoor.

One cannot pass by and resist to the temptation of few pictures of these two bridges. The old bridge - pedestrians only - is surprisingly without any protection at all. It is not very high but faling into the shallow water an the rocks beneath,...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... More
