|Crossings related to the B3357|
Dartmeet Bridge crosses the River Dart at the western end of the B3357 on Dartmoor. The bridge is a simple twin stone arch structure which crosses the East Dart just above its confluence with the West Dart. It was built in 1792, and a date stone on the north parapet, facing out over the river, names it 'county bridge', although this may refer to the fact that it was built by the county council.
Immediately upstream of the road bridge is a much older structure, one of the numerous clapper bridges to be found on Dartmoor. Only 2 of the presumed 5 original spans survive, the first and third from the eastern bank. It is, however, possible to reach the isolated span as the river bed is very bouldery at this point, allowing people to scramble across!
