Portal of Tavy


Photo Information
Sunlight dapples the riverbanks in places, as the slowly drifting waters of the River Tavy pass beneath Denham Bridge on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

Denham Bridge is an old packhorse bridge near Buckland Monachorum. It is a Grade II listed building. A bridge existed on this site in medieval times but the present structure probably dates to the 17th Century, although considerably repaired in 19th Century.

The deep pool below the bridge is a popular wild-swimming location.

I really like the colours reflected in the water and the textures of the stonework on the bridge

Thanks very much Malc 😎 That afternoon had nice light, calm waters running over the gravel beds and leaves gently being animated by a light breeze... the current flowing about my wellington boots gave a sense of connection to it all. A fine moment in a characterful place 😊 I can see why JMW Turner did some artwork here

"Simply nice"? ..... VERY nice!
I was wondering how you didn't get wet? The answer is above.

Many thanks indeed David 😎 A few metres up stream is a 10m deep submerged canyon, so one has to be observant of where to wade out 😁
