Details

BOYTON SX 39 SW 5/63 Haunch Bridge - II

Accommodation bridge. Circa 1823. Stone rubble with dressed stone arch. The bridge was built over the Bude canal and adjoining towpath for a track which has now been partly ploughed over. The towpath, constructed of stone rubble is almost as wide as the narrow canal. The bridge has an ellipitical arch of dressed stone and stone rubble parapets which are splayed over the abutments. There are few surviving remains of the Bude canal (1823-1891) and this bridge clearly illustrates the width and nature of the canal. There are the remains of two culverts to the north and south of Haunch Bridge. For further details and history see Rendell, J. The Story of the Bude Canal 1987.
