Remains of a bridge approach ramp not shown on historical maps. The substantial earthwork with a slightly cambered profile is aligned north to south on the slope to the west of Cadover Bridge. The earthwork is roughly parallel to the current road and rises slightly as it approaches the river where it stops abruptly. The earthwork is circa 30 metres long by 8 metres wide and up to 0.4 metres high. It is likely to be the approach ramp for an earlier bridge over the River Plym but the date is not known.
