Listing Text

PADSTOW PRIDEAUX PLACE, Padstow
SW 9075-9175
8/122 Footbridge over lane to estate yard
and flanking walls forming north
end of mock fortifications to north
east of Prideaux Place

GV II*

Footbridge and flanking walls. Circa early C19. Slate stone rubble. Footbridge
over lane to estate yard which lies to the north of Prideaux Place (qv) and flanking
walls which screen the estate yard on the west and extend along a raised terrace,
known as the Colonel's walk to the east.
The footbridge has a dressed stone 4-centred arch flanked by stepped buttresses and
has a coped parapet which is raised and pointed in the centre, above the apex of the
arch. The flanking walls to west and east are crenellated and there is a circa C16
dressed stone arch which has been probably reset in the west wall.
The bridge and walls were probably an early C19 extension of the mock fortifications
which were erected to the east of Prideaux Place by Edmund Prideaux in 1728-45 or by
his son Humphrey before 1758 when they were illustrated, in part, in a print by
Borlase.
