REDRUTH STATION HILL SE 64 SE (south side) 11/304 Footbridge linking up and down 29.9.87 platforms of Redruth Railway Station GV II Footbridge. Dated 1888 in spandrels; for Great Western Railway Company. Cast and wrought iron, steel, and wood. U-plan, with quarter-turned flights of steps parallel to the line on the west side. The bridge is carried by a square set of cast-iron columns at each end, the capitals decorated in Egyptian style, the ΒΌ- turn landing on top of these columns approached by open wooden steps on steel strings with cast-iron open-work balusters and wooden handrails; the triangular spandrels to the main deck were all formerly decorated with wrought-iron monograms "1888" and "GWR" but these survive completely only on the east side at the north end; the landings and the main deck are protected by wrought-iron lattice fences. The steps at the south end rise from the porch of the waiting room (q.v.), to which they are linked. Bisto : part of the improvements connected with the dualling of the line. Listed as an unaltered example of its type and date.
