The Clapper Bridge at Postbridge



Clapper bridge at Postbridge

The clapper bridge at Postbridge, a tiny village on Dartmoor, is a beautiful and practical piece of ancient architecture. There's a wonderful, solid feel to a bridge like this, with its stone pillars and huge flagstones.

It must have been a good crossing point, too, because the modern road bridge has been built just a few metres away.

you get the impression it will be there for ever, don't you? The lack of handrails of any sort would make it feasible for me only in dry weather!!!! :)
