SS 20 SW MARHAMCHURCH HELEBRIDGE

7/54 Canal Bridge over The - Bude Canal

GV II

Canal bridge carrying road across the Bude canal. 1820. Probably by James Green, engineer to the Bude canal (q.v. Burmsdon, Launcells). Stone rubble, with freestone dressings. Single span bridge with granite capped parapets oversailing 2-centred arch. The Bude canal between Bude and termini at Holsworthy and Launceston was constructed between 1819 and 1825. It was financed by the Bude Harbour and Canal Company and designed by James Green. The canal was constructed primarily to carry sea sand, used as manure, to improve farm land. Helebridge marked the point beyond which the canal could only be navigated by tub boats, goods between Bude and Helebridge being carried by barges. Helen Harris and Monica Ellis, The Bude Canal (1972), pp. 106-107.
