This bridge carries the Buckfastleigh Steam Railway (South Devon Railway) over the little stream. Buckfastleigh in Devon (UK) is a small market town at the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.
The name “Buckfast” means “stronghold” — traditionally a place where deer and buck were held, and “Leigh” would have been the pasture belonging to Buckfast. Joining the words together gives the town it’s name.
The South Devon Railway Trust is a charitable organization that operates a heritage railway from Buckfastleigh to Totnes alongside the River Dart. The line was first opened on 1 May 1872.
