The bridge forms part of the western bypass route who's construction was completed in 2007 and now allows easy access from the A39 Atlantic Highway to the A361 Braunton Road which generates much of Barnstaple's traffic.
The construction of the bypass greatly relieved congestion from the market town of Barnstaple.
The earliest settlement in the area was probably at Pilton on the bank of the River Yeo, now a northern suburb of the present town.
By the 18th century, Barnstaple had ceased to be a woollen making town, and this business was replaced by the import of Irish wool and yarn. The raw materials were carried by land to the new clothmaking towns in mid- and east Devon, such as Tiverton and Honiton.
