A little walk from the village comes to this cute bridge which provides for a very pleasant walk and photo opportunity with a little difference

More tress there now than we remember, but a nice little bridge/ford nonetheless. Nice for children to play in (supervised of course)

A lovely little bridge and stream in a stunning village-could have stayed here all day just trying to think how many people over the years have walked over it. A little wonder of Dunster.

This bridge has been here for many years and is another site to visit if you are near the water mill. It can be easily accessed from the castle and there is no charge.

At the far end of Dunster Village and not visited by many. Stream is very gentle and it is a pack horse bridge so quite unusual to come across. Lovely setting to watch time pass by.

This is one of those iconic locations that we return to again and again. It is also the start to a lovely short walk along the back of the castle by the river. So pretty.

You are best parking and find signs for the watermill, as the the bridge is a 30 second walk away
