St Bridget's Church
Bridgerule is a village and parish which stretches across the border of Devon with Cornwall, which is marked by the River Tamar. The Tamar runs through the middle of the village, the greater part of Bridgerule being on the western side in Cornwall, although the parish church lies in Devon. The river often floods the High Street.
The village population, including both sides, at the 2011 census was 1,734.
Whitstone and Bridgerule railway station on the line from Okehampton to Bude served the village, opening in 1898 and closing in 1966.
There is a 15th-century church dedicated, as at Bridestowe, to St Bridget, who is commemorated with a statue. There are also several paintings and carvings within. The font is very old, dating from Saxon times.
