Railway bridge support, Newton Abbot
Templer Way, left, heads upstream and the River Lemon heads down to join the River Teign under the bridge carrying the main line between Exeter and Plymouth. The supporting pier is constructed of, or possibly clad with, the fine-grained grey Devonian limestone which was quarried around Torquay, Brixham and inland. The bridge in the distance carries the former, very scenic, GWR branch line from Newton Abbot to Moretonhampstead but which now ends at Bovey Heath SX8276 near Heathfield LinkExternal link. This is almost the furthest extent of the huge reedbeds at the head of the Teign estuary LinkExternal link.
