Road bridge or viaduct, A381 at Littlehempston
Road bridge or viaduct, A381 at Littlehempston
This substantial viaduct enables the link to be maintained along the A381 - the main road between Newton Abbot and Totnes. It takes traffic across the valley which is home to a tributary to the Hems river and further east there is Gatcombe House with its old mill which used to use the water in this tributary to power the machinery.

This is a view from the public footpath from just above the old farm in Littlehempston which passes through the woods to the carpark of the Pig and Whistle public house. Well signposted but not quite so obvious as to which way the path takes through the woods, but it becomes more obvious as you climb the hill to the woods.

At the start of this footpath at the Littlehempston end, the footpath route is in effect inside the curtilage of a bungalow for the first 50 metres. Keep to the footpath!!
