What can We do Today?
This late medieval stone bridge - originally 'gallows bridge' - across the River Avill once carried packhorses bringing fleeces from Exmoor to the Somerset market town of Dunster. The town had become a centre of the wool trade by the 13th century, when it was the main source of England's wealth.

Managed by the National Trust.

The medieval village of Dunster is one of Exmoor's most popular attractions, with plenty of shops and places to eat. It's also a convenient base for walking in the stunning Exmoor National Park.
