II

Road bridge over River Amble and flood plain. 1791. Built by Rev. William Sandys. Stone rubble with dressed stone pointed arches and moulded granite strings. Bridge to medieval design. Four pointed arches of 5 to 6.5 metres span with five cutwaters on each side. The stone rubble parapets are carried out over the cutwaters to form refuges.

The bridge was acclaimed by Henderson as the only Cornish post-Reformation bridge worth visiting.

The asset was previously listed twice also under the parish of St. Minver Highlands, at List entry 1124698. That entry was removed from the List on 19 October 2017.

This entry was subject to a Minor Amendment on 19 October 2017.
