Exe Bridge: a modern view

The view shows the monument as it survives today. Of the original seventeen arches, exactly half survive - those which bridged the low marshy land on the city side of the river. Built c. 1200, with alternating rounded and pointed arches, it is the only major surviving element of one of early medieval Britain's major bridges.
