Huckworthy Bridge on the River walkham on Dartmoor

Huckworthy Bridge is in the pretty little hamlet of Huckworthy near Walkhampton in the Dartmoor National Park. This is a delightful area of the moor and it is easy to feel envious of the people who live in this charming hamlet. The lovely stone bridge is very narrow and has to be negotiated carefully when driving your car, and the roads approaching it are very narrow. But of course, this means not much traffic passes this way, so makes it a very peaceful location. This photo was taken on a beautiful winters day in February, with the sunlight showing the bridge and houses by the river at their best.
