Welcome to Postbridge.net

This is a website for Postbridge, a small village in the centre of Dartmoor.

It was created for the benefit of people living in the village and the surrounding area but we hope that it will also be of use to anyone planning a visit to Dartmoor.

I have been reprimanded because I haven't changed the website to its winter colours. I tried to explain that we've had more mud than snow this year, but I was out-voted (I'm not sure how she does that on her own). So we're now on winter colours, let's hope this late start means we have a short winter.

Please note that the Post Office Stores are running on their winter hours until 31st March.

This website remains a new venture and is still subject to many changes - even the final article will continue to evolve, depending on the changing needs/events/requirements in Postbridge - and, of course, the input of local people.

The Clapper Bridge

It is believed that the famous Clapper Bridge dates back to the 12th century.  In heavy rain, the East Dart river can rise very quickly from just a trickle to a raging torrent.   The Clapper Bridge has survived many such events and David Cooper, who was just a lad when it was built, remembers them all

The Post Office Stores

The Postbridge Post Office and Village Store is opposite the famous Clapper Bridge.
Cream Teas and other refreshments are available from the shop.  The Shop's opening hours are available here
