Picture of Long Bridge at Bideford at left.
It was built of wood in 1296 AD then replaced with stone in 1474
They say the arches are different sizes because each murchant built each one according to how wealthy he was. Interesting

The town has a a long history. It was involved in wars against the Danes about or before 1000 AD. It also was involved against King Richard. In the 15th and 16 Centuries the town was the third largest port in England. The merchants were doing well with the heavy trade.
