Teign Bridge

Teign Bridge was constructed in 1815 replacing the red sandstone bridge, which had been there since 1434. Previously, there had been a wooden bridge from about 1084, the time of the Romans. There is also evidence of early housing on either side of the bridge. The roads met in the form of a “T” junction which led in directions north, west and southerly. These were called North Street, High Street and Forde Street.
