I discovered this little bridge whilst enjoying a walk around the moors down from Belstone. In fact I recommend that you should take a similar route to this cache, down from Belstone as it is a fairly easy walk with footpaths.
The location is rather tranquil and a lovely place for a spot of lunch and to rest your legs.
There were once stepping stones here, Nettleham Steps, but when we got here there were no steps but there was this bridge, and it was such a lovely location I felt people needed to be brought here, and so placed a cache nearby.
The East Okement River joins the West Okement River at Okehampton to form the Okement River.
If you walk over the bridge from the moors you enter Halstock Wood and it is part of the Tarka Trail.
The Little Bridges series was started by Stanthews in 2009 to highlight small footbridges in remote parts of Wiltshire. Since then the series has been expanded by others all over the country and starting to spread fast, Damian from Winter Foxes has created and updates a list of cachers who has found 10 or more little bridges and can be found here, if you would like to add to the series, please contact Stan on firstname.lastname@example.org and he will give you a number for your bridge, to qualify, the bridge must be a foot bridge too small for vehicles, please make sure your title exactly matches “Little Bridges # xx then name” including spaces so it will get picked up and added to Damian’s list.
