SX 38 NW ST GILES ON THE HEATH

6/35 Nether Bridge -

II*

Road bridge over the River Tamar. Medieval core but thoroughly rebuilt. Stone rubble and granite ashlar. 3-span with an additional flood span and 2 tall cutwaters terminating in refuges. The arches spring from plain imposts, the central arch is slightly pointed, the outer arches are rounded. The arch rings are granite and slightly recessed and the bridge is granite ashlar below the imposts. The flood arch is probably an addition, a granite string course above the arches does not continue above the flood arch which is separated from the main spans by a buttress. Granite milestone on centre of bridge with "L 2" for Launceston 2 miles. A good example of a large medieval bridge.
