Teignhead Farm Clapper Bridge

Teignhead Farm Clapper Bridge is an excellent example of its type, it sits just below the ruined farm over the North Teign river, between Sittaford Tor and Manga Hill. it is a fairly easy bridge to get to as it is just outside the Fernworthy Forest, requiring a walk along good forest tracks to see the bridge. It was built in the early 1800s in order to serve the nearby farm.
