Two Bridges

Two Bridges is on the river West Dart

Two Bridges is isolated on the river West Dart in the heart of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, England. Around 2.5 km north east of Princetown where two roads cross Dartmoor

Today, there are two bridges as a more modern structure has been added alongside its earlier predecessor.

Local tradesmen lodged at the Saracen's Head. It was built in 1794 as a coaching inn, and still stands there today, although it is now known as the Two Bridges Hotel.

It continues to be a popular meeting point for tourists and walkers. The area is also surrounded by prehistoric antiquities, including Bronze Age settlements, stone rows and an impressive standing stone, the Beardown Man, situated to the north.
