Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge, Chagford, Dartmoor National Park

Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge, Chagford, Dartmoor National Park

Many of Dartmoor's most photographed clapper bridges are very easily accessible. Coach loads of tourists cross the road from the Postbridge National Park Visitor Centre to walk the famous Postbridge Clapper Bridge. There's a big car park by the ruined Dartmeet Clapper Bridge.

Whilst photographers love capturing images of Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge, it's a little more difficult to get to. Spanning the North Teign River on the edge of Dartmoor's high north plateau, you have to cross Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge and then the smaller Wallabrook Bridge to get to Scorhill Stone Circle. The views across high moor to Cosdon Hill, Wild Tor and Watern Tor are superb. Note also that just downstream of Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge is the quirky Tolmen Stone.

We've positioned Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location.

To visit, we'd suggest you follow the skinny road that climbs from Chagford to Batworthy Corner by Kestor Rock on the edge of the high moor. This is clearly marked on the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map. From Batworthy Corner, walk roughly a kilometre north west and you'll come to the North Teign River. The Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge is unmissable in front of you. Beyond that is Wallabrook Bridge and a path that takes you up to Scorhill Stone Circle.

Alternatively, walk in from the small car parking area by Scorhill Farm. Cross Scorhill Down south west to Scorhill Stone Circle. Drop down to Wallabrook Bridge and then to Teign-e-ver Clapper Bridge.
