Railway bridge over the estuary of the River Tavy. Circa 1889-90. Eight spans of iron bowstring braced girders on seven pairs of iron-clad circular piers with pedimental caps. The iron bridge spans the deep-water channel. Either end, over the tidal mud is bridged with a stone viaduct of segmental arches, seven at the south-east end and two at the north-west end. The Plymouth Devonport South-Western Junction Railway Company was formed in 1883 and this line from Lydford to Devonport was opened in 1890. The line was operated by the LSWR which had a small capital holding in the Company. The LSWR eventually took over in 1922.
