Lovers Bridge

Lovers Bridge is positioned over the River Avill in Dunster Village in Somerset by the grounds of the well known Dunster Castle.

It was designed by Richard Phelps as a part of the 18th Century enhancement of the Castle Grounds for H.F Luttrell. It is built in a rustic style meant to be viewed from the north with a brick seat built into the parapet of which the bridge gets its name from.

An information plaque showing the history of the bridge is on the Dunster Mill side and I highly recommend visiting the bridge when you make your visit to Dunster Village.
