Full description

Robinson, R., Ugborough (Worksheet). SDV160162.

Owley Bridge, over Glaze Brook; the boundary between Ugborough and South Brent. The bridge is single arch, segmental, random stone with granite copings to the parapets. The span is officially given as 4.267 meters, the width as 2.4 meters. The segment of the arch is almost half circle, so that the roadway is somewhat hump-backed. The centre of the arch is about 4.2 meters above normal water level. The bridge abutments extend along the road on both sides; the South Brent side is curved to match the curve in the road. There are two wheel-stops on the inner side of the curve. The bridge is well conditioned and has probably had masonry repairs in recent years. The general appearance, however, is that of an old structure, perhaps 18th century.

Robinson, R., 1978, South Brent (Worksheet). SDV160163.
