Ward Bridge

Another bridge spanning the River Walkham, upstream from Huckworthy Bridge by about a mile or so. This is a simple road bridge which links Sampford Spiney to nowhere really, Eggworthy Farm perhaps but most of the lanes are dead ends, only the road which loops back towards Walkhampton counts. Perhaps it was for the church at Walkhampton which is north of the village and Huckworthy Bridge )which is a better option from Sampford if going to Walkhampton. This bridge doesn’t appear to be listed but is a fine stone bridge within the woodland.
