Footbridge over line of former
Redruth-Chacewater Railway

Footbridge over former railway. Constructed c.1853 by the Redruth and
Chacewater Railway Company. Wrought iron, with granite abutments. Very simple
structure made of slender H-section iron rails (perhaps manufactured as rails for
rolling stock) bolted to uprights of the same material to form protective railings
on each side of a simple plank deck over the track, on the inner side of the
stone approach ramps which run parallel with it from the west, and on one side
of an approach path on the south side.
