Photographer's Note

Bellever is a hamlet in Dartmoor, Devon, England.
Image taken of landcape surrounding Bellever Bridge which crosses the East Dart river in Dartmoor National Park. "Bellever Bridge lies about a mile south of Postbridge on an unclassified road which has followed the East Dart downriver. The road crosses on a three stone arch structure similar to that at Postbridge, and again immediately downstream is a Clapper Bridge."

We reached Bellever as part of the relatively short walk from Postbridge to Bellever Tor, to Bellever and back to Postbridge.
A clapper bridge is an ancient form of bridge found on the moors of Devon (Dartmoor and Exmoor) and in other upland areas of the United Kingdom including Snowdonia and Anglesey. It is formed by large flat slabs of granite or schist supported on stone piers (across rivers), or resting on the banks of streams.
