Lotherton Bridge a road bridge over the River Yealm. Circa 17th/18th century, partly rebuilt. Stone rubble. Two spans widely separated. The west arch is round and the east arch in slightly pointed. Each has recessed arch rings. On the north, upstream side a large cutwater type of projection is possibly part of the original structure. Rebuilt stone rubble parapets. The river flows through the west arch and the east one acts as a flood arch. In 1672 the bridge was reported to be in decay and in 1809 there were two arches.
