in Ottery St Mary, Devon

A cast iron arch bridge built in 1851 by Joseph Butler and Co of Stanningley Iron Works, near Leeds. 83 ft span.

In 1992 the bridge was strengthened and widened without spoiling its appearance. The reinforced concrete deck is clear of the cast iron arches, being supported by straight steel I beams.
