SS 20 SW MARHAMCHURCH HELEBRIDGE
7/54 Canal Bridge over The
- Bude Canal
Canal bridge carrying road across the Bude canal. 1820. Probably by James Green,
engineer to the Bude canal (q.v. Burmsdon, Launcells). Stone rubble, with
freestone dressings. Single span bridge with granite capped parapets oversailing
2-centred arch. The Bude canal between Bude and termini at Holsworthy and
Launceston was constructed between 1819 and 1825. It was financed by the Bude
Harbour and Canal Company and designed by James Green. The canal was constructed
primarily to carry sea sand, used as manure, to improve farm land. Helebridge
marked the point beyond which the canal could only be navigated by tub boats,
goods between Bude and Helebridge being carried by barges. Helen Harris and
Monica Ellis, The Bude Canal (1972), pp. 106-107.
