Red River Bridge and boundary stone
(formerly listed as "Marazion Old Bridge")
Road bridge over confluence of Red River and stream and with parish boundary stone. Probably C18. Granite rubble with granite voussoirs and squared granite parapet copings fastened with iron cramps.
Plan: Two-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).
