8/11 Marazion Bridge
Road bridge over a small river through a flood plain. Datestone 1837. Granite
ashlar walls with dressed granite voussoirs, string parapet copings and rusticated
piers or buttresses resembling pilasters. Beyond the terminal piers at either end of
the parapet, there are rubble walls with simpler squared granite copings fastened by
iron cramps (like Marazion Old Bridge qv).
Plan: Single span bridge carrying a wide straight carriageway with the parapet walls
running for a considerable distance beyond the valley (channel).
The round arch of the bridge springs from buttressed abutments as responds, and there
is a similar parapet buttress terminating the ashlar walling at either side making 8
The bridge is symmetrical and similar to both the upstream (north) and the downstream
sides. Each side has a central round arch with projecting keystone, a buttress at
either side of the arch and buttresses at left and right beyond; the buttresses rise
slightly above the parapets and have V-jointed rustications and squat pyramidal caps.
Between the central buttresses there are strings below the parapets. Sloped copings,

An unusually wide bridge for this date and with high quality details; built to take
the main flow of traffic from Marazion Old Bridge qv.
