Gallox Bridge
Gallox Bridge
A medieval packhorse bridge, probably dating to the 15th century, across the River Avill on the southern outskirts of Dunster village. The bridge was traditionally used by packhorses bringing fleece to Dunster wool market.
The name was originally 'gallows bridge'. The bridge is a pleasing semi-circle, curving for 13.5 metres, with two low arches supportig the span. The bridge leads to a raised causeway which avoids a ford.
