My original drawing

In the 1990s I was lucky enough to live in Devon and for several years made a weekly trip to the Dartmoor National Park. My visits were made all-year-round and since the weather can make Dartmoor unsafe, I always carried a tent and survival equipment. Maybe because of my well equipped pack I often extended my trip to include an overnight stay.
The park is filled with wonders and history and includes some ancient stone bridges like my graphite pencil drawing of Fingle’s Bridge, which is viewed from the Fingle Inn in Autumn.

The bridge is a granite, narrow, pack-horse bridge and in 1665 was reported to be in a bad state of repair.

The bridge is now in good order but care must be taken if driving a car over the bridge in order to avoid getting ‘stuck’.

In 1895 John Lloyd Page wrote:

“How clear the rushing waters gliding beneath the grey arches! how rich in colouring have the lichens and ferns rendered its hoary walls! and, whether we look up-stream to the hills, softly meeting one another with foliage changing from bright green in the foreground to misty blue in the distance, or downward to where the old mill with its moss-grown water-wheel, nestles beneath the woods, and Prestonbury rises mountainous over all, we shall confess that a scene of greater beauty it has never been our lot to view”.
