6/35 Nether Bridge
Road bridge over the River Tamar. Medieval core but thoroughly rebuilt. Stone
rubble and granite ashlar. 3-span with an additional flood span and 2 tall cutwaters
terminating in refuges. The arches spring from plain imposts, the central arch is
slightly pointed, the outer arches are rounded. The arch rings are granite and
slightly recessed and the bridge is granite ashlar below the imposts. The flood arch
is probably an addition, a granite string course above the arches does not continue
above the flood arch which is separated from the main spans by a buttress. Granite
milestone on centre of bridge with "L 2" for Launceston 2 miles.
A good example of a large medieval bridge.
