8/12 Marazion Old Bridge and Boundary
Road bridge over confluence of 2 streams and with parish boundary stone. Probably
C18. Granite rubble with granite voussoirs and squared granite parapet copings
fastened with iron cramps.
Plan: 2-span bridge of single carriageway width splayed out over the abutments; semi-
circular-on-plan refuges at either side and flanking the carriageway are randomly
spaced granite fenders built into the parapet. Upstream there is a bank between the
streams and downstream there is a triangular-on-plan cutwater where the streams
converge. In the south-eastern refuge is a probably early C19 round-headed granite
monolithic boundary stone incised with the letter M for Marazion parish.
The bridge is humped in the middle and the arches are pointed.
This is a rare unaltered C18 road bridge, saved from being widened by the
construction of another bridge nearby in 1837 (Marazion Bridge qv).
