CAMBORNE MILL ROAD
SW 63 NW
(off west end)
Public footbridge over stream. Probably early C18 or earlier. Granite.
Clapper bridge type, with 3 flat spans formed by roughly-hewn stone planks
in pairs tied together with iron staples and supported by 2 hefty blocks set
in the bed of the stream. On the south side is a simple iron handrail
supported by 4 very slender iron posts. A rare survival.
