Devonia, Vol. 6 free pdf Excerpt from Devonia, Vol. 6: The Official Organ of the United Devon Association- January, 1907 Holne Bridge is perhaps the most picturesque of all the Dart bridges- it was rebuilt, as mentioned above, in 1413, at the same time as that at Staverton, but has only four arches of unequal spans, one of which, by much the largest, however, suffices to take the whole river unless in times of flood. Under this arch the Dart rushes along a deep natural trench or fault. Near the foundation of the piers may be noticed several potholes in the rock of various sizes and depths, testifying to the water action of the past. The ancient packhorse way between Ashburton and Tavistock formerly crossed the river at a ford a little lower down, but must always have been subject to sudden freshets and floods. The traffic in tin ore and wool was in old times of great importance and is given as a reason for the granting indulgences toward its erection. Following the river, after crossing the bridge to the Holne side, we pass through the well-known Holne Chase, which was granted, with the Manor of Holne, by King Edward III. to his daughter, who married Bouchier Count D'eu, and continued in the hands of her descendants until recently purchased by the Hon. R. Dawson, its present owner. This portion of the Dart has, perhaps, the choicest bits of sylvan scenery in Devon, where for two or three miles the river flows and rushes through a wooded gorge, above which the bare moors and granite tors are visible. The house of Holne Chase is a pleasantly-situated residence, once a group of cottages, which Sir Bouchier Wrey made into a Hunting Box about 1843. It stands on the hillside on the eastern bank of the river which it commands. Cleft Rock, on the opposite side of the valley, is a prominent feature at the entrance to the Chase gorge, the deep cleft being the result of ancient mining works. The Rapids, looking up the river, are caused by a hard band of metallic rock, which here crosses the bed of the Dart, and has offered more resistance to its corrosion than the softer slate, thus forming a partial barrier and deep pool below, the favourite haunt of salmon- in the distance Buckland Beacon, a thousand feet above, is seen over the trees.
