The Devonport Leat was built in the late 18th century to carry fresh drinking water from Dartmoor to the expanding dockyards in Devonport. Originally it had a total length of 27 miles starting from the West Dart near to Wistman's Wood and went all the way to the dockyards. It still provides drinking water, but now empties its supply into the Burrator Reservoir.
I would like to thank the Dartmoor National Park Authority for their kind permission to place this cache, which has been placed according to the geocaching guidelines.
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. There is a stats listing run by Bloodsock, so you can see how many Little Bridges you have found, you can find it here:- https://littlebridgesseries.wordpress.com/ . If you would like to add to the series, please contact Stan on email@example.com 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 # xxxx then the name” including spaces so it will get picked up and added to stats list.
