The entry for

KENWYN NEW MILLS SW 84 NW 3/183 Footbridge over the River Kenwyn Shall be amended to: SW 84 NW NEW MILLS 3/183 Footbridges over II River Kenwyn and Leat and the description shall be amended to read:

Footbridge in two sections linked by causeways. Possibly C18. Granite slab walkways carried on rubble abutments but with intermediate piers in granite monoliths. The bridge over the river is in 3 openings, with one opening separated by a pier c3.5m wide from the other two; and a pair of short supporting granite piers to the paired openings. To the south c20m is the 2 opening leat span similar in construction to the river spans. At either end the causeway runsout to road level, and the causeway surfaces are in asphalt. On the east side of the footways are runs of iron tube rail to tube standard, probably C19; the leat span has 5 standards and the river span 3+5 standards. A late version of the clapper bridge: the very deep footway slabs suggest and C18 rather than C19 date.

------------------------------------

KENWYN NEW MILLS SW 84 NW 3/183 Footbridge over the River Kenwyn - GV II Footbridge. Circa early C19. Rubble piers, one pier is of granite monoliths, and rough granite lintels rather like a clapper bridge. 4 spans, with span to far left (south), and other spans closer grouped to right (north) with narrow pier between those to right. C20 iron handrail to west side. A simple structure evolved from the clapper bridge principal and an interesting survival of this primitive bridge type.
