lover’s bridge

Lovers Bridge is located on Dunster Castle Gardens’ Mill Walk. It crosses the River Avill which is a small river in Somerset, England. It rises on Dunkery Beacon’s eastern slopes and flows north through Timberscombe, Dunster, and Dunster before entering the Bristol Channel at Dunster Beach.

Richard Phelps designed Lovers Bridge as part of an 18th-century enhancement of Castle grounds for H.F. Luttrell. It was built in rustic style and can be seen from the north.

The parapet has a brick seat that is named after the bridge. Lover’s bridge is a must-see when visiting Dunster.
