I drive past here everytime I go to visit a friend and the place is usually busy, but for once I was a little earlier and it was empty so I managed to get a couple shots before people started to turn up. I’ve never swam here myself, but many do. There are warning signs to say its deeper than you think, almost 40 foot under the bridge. It may be deep, but it is also narrow with rock ledges just under the water, so best check where they are before attempting to jump in.
Denham Bridge is a one span packhorse bridge, which crosses the River Tavy between Bere Alston and Buckland Monachorum in West Devon. It’s Grade II-listed and thought to date from the 17th century, though its parapet was repaired in the 1800s. A previous bridge existed in medieval times.
A warning sign nearby states that the river is up to 40 feet deep near the bridge. The River Tavy source is in the north of Dartmoor, near Lydford. It then flows south via Tavistock and joins the River Tamar about five miles to the south of this bridge, near Bere Ferrers.
