Tamerton Bridge


Railway bridge over Tamerton Lake, a tidal creek at the confluence of the River Tamer and River Tavy. Crosses the boundary between the City of Plymouth and the parish of Bickleigh. Circa 1889-90. Iron pile and girder bridge. Seven spans with pairs of iron-clad circular piers (or piles), with cross-bracing, supporting iron girders with balustrades. 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 has a small capital holding in the Company. The LSWR eventually took over in 1922.
