Union Bridge
Union Bridge
This is the old Union Bridge (1822) which crosses the River Lemon in front of the new Asda supermarket building in Newton Abbot. The River Lemon is 16km long.  Its source is on the south east side of Dartmoor near Haytor, it then joins with the River Sig and the Langworthy Brook at Sigford, passes the village of Bickington. Lower down it is joined by the Kestor Brook and then it  flows through the woods in Bradley Valley passing the manor house.  It is after this that it flows through Newton Abbot, passing through a 400 metre long tunnel below the town centre. Just below the town the river joins the River Teign near the head of its estuary.
