Footbridge linking up and down
29.9.87 platforms of Redruth
Railway Station
Footbridge. Dated 1888 in spandrels; for Great Western Railway Company. Cast
and wrought iron, steel, and wood. U-plan, with quarter-turned flights of steps
parallel to the line on the west side. The bridge is carried by a square set of
cast-iron columns at each end, the capitals decorated in Egyptian style, the ΒΌ-
turn landing on top of these columns approached by open wooden steps on steel
strings with cast-iron open-work balusters and wooden handrails; the triangular
spandrels to the main deck were all formerly decorated with wrought-iron
monograms "1888" and "GWR" but these survive completely only on the east side
at the north end; the landings and the main deck are protected by wrought-iron
lattice fences. The steps at the south end rise from the porch of the waiting
room (q.v.), to which they are linked. Bisto : part of the improvements
connected with the dualling of the line. Listed as an unaltered example of its
type and date.
