Quay wall 40 metres to north west of north east end of Wadebridge Bridge

Remains of quay walls. Circa C18 on earlier site and with earlier origins. Slatestone rubble walls largely constructed in vertical courses with horizontal slatestone piers forming wall to Bradford quay on north east bank of River Camel. The warehouses on the quay have been largely replaced with C20 galvanised buildings although part of the North Cornwall Railway station, erected in 1895 exists.

The River Camel was navigable for vessels up to sixty tons from Padstow to Wadebridge and there was a dock capable of holding twenty barges. Bradford quay and the Town Quay on the opposite bank of the river were used for unloading coal, slates, lime, bricks, timber and later cement. Sea sand carried up river from Padstow to Wadebridge was then carried inland after 1834 when the first steam railway in Cornwall was built between Wadebridge and Bodmin.
