Geocache Description:

Although the Little Bridge itself is not the best bridge on Dartmoor; the leat which it crosses, the Mine Leat, is certainly one of the prettiest on Dartmoor. There is a delightful walk along this leat which starts just a few hundred yards north east of the cache at Hill Bridge which crosses the River Tavy where there are salmon leaps. The leat itself is a master of engineering with a very steep drop to one side.

I would describe this cache as a "Little Bridge with attitude" - so please take care!

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:- . If you would like to add to the series, please contact Stan on 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.
