Robber's Bridge is an old masonry arch bridge in the royal forest of Exmoor, carrying the minor road from Porlock Hill to Oare. It crosses Weir Water and is located down a steep, wooded lane beneath overhanging trees.
Association with Lorna Doone
The bridge takes its name from the fact that much of this area was dangerous bandit country in past centuries. R.D. Blackmore drew on the history and legends of this area to create his world-famous novel Lorna Doone.
