Manga Rails, or Mangersford as it is also known, is a crossing point of the North Teign River just below Manga Rock. The granite posts that support the rails have been in place since 1780, with wooden cross beams stopping livestock from moving too freely around the moor. However the river and the weather have worn these rails away many times (they usually last 20 or so years) the last time being in 2014. For the previous couple of hundred years they have been made from iron and the last time were painted. These rails take many a pair of boots, especially when the river is running high so I can see the replacement continuing for some time yet!
