SW 74 SE PERRANARWORTHAL
1/309 Bridge at SW 786 400 SE
Road bridge over Carnon River. Circa early C19. Killas rubble with granite lintels and dressed granite hogs-back copings.
Five span bridge with lintels spanning flat arches between slender piers with
cutwaters upstream and downstream. Plain parapets surmounted by original copings.
Now serving a minor road, but this was formerly the main road from Truro to Penryn and Falmouth and this bridge enabled the most important wining valley in Cornwall in the early C19 to be crossed at the then lowest point.
A late use of the simple post and lintel form of structure. The Carnon River is no longer navigable at this point.
