Listing Text

SX 18 NW


Slaughter bridge 500 metres to south east of Worthyvale Manor


Roadbridge over River Camel. Probably C18. Slate stone rubble and granite. Central span with 2 narrower spans flanking, all 3 with roughly cut granite lintels. 2 stone rubble cutwaters. The slate stone rubble parapets have been partly renewed and are splayed over the abutments.
Traditionally associated with the site of King Arthur's last battle. King Arthur's stone which probably commemorates Catinus, son of Magarus is sited nearby at SX109856 and is scheduled as an Ancient Monument.
The name may derive from the word 'slohtre' meaning a marsh or muddy place.
