Tarr Steps washed away again
Part of the famous Tarr Steps have been swept away AGAIN.
The Exmoor landmark was rebuilt in February at a cost of ten thousand pounds after a storm last December.
The steps are an ancient monument, but also an official highway, so the cost of repairs falls on Somerset County Council.

One of Exmoor's most iconic landmarks has been swept away in the floods. The ancient clapper bridge, Tarr Steps, was demolished when fallen trees pushed up against the giant stones. 3/4 of the bridge has gone and will have to be rebuilt.
