10/118 Lostwithiel Bridge
Bridge over the River Fowey. Mid C15, with additional flood arch of C18 and late
repairs. Slatestone rubble with chamfered granite copings to parapet walls.
The bridge runs east/west across the river, with the C18 works to east. There are 5
pointed arches, with relieving arches; from the south, there is a low 4-centred arch
to left, and then the 4 main arches, 2 to left slightly taller, with cutwaters
between the refuges on top. The 5 old arches are 13 feet in span; the roadway is 11
feet wide and the parapets were added in 1676; these are splayed back at the west
end, and extend overall about 30 feet. To the right, there is a taller round flood
arch with buttress to left and smaller round floor arch, rebuilt in the C18.
