Description:The Long Bridge Bideford at night (C) Rod Allday
At 678 feet, Bideford bridge across the River Torridge is reckoned to be the longest in Devon. It is probably C15th, encasing timbers of a wooden bridge originally built in the late C13th. It was widened to include footpaths in 1795-1810 and further widened to provide a double carriageway by Thomas Page of London in 1867. It consists of 24 pointed arches of differing widths, believed to result from its timber origins. On either side of each one is a segmental arch added to carry the footpaths of 1795-1810.
