- east of Woolston Farmhouse
Railway viaduct, formerly carrying the Holsworthy to Bude railway. 1898.
Chamfered rusticated concrete block laid in Flemish bond. 5-span viaduct with
parapets. Round arches spring from chamfered imposts on piers of rectangular
section. Parapet has moulded cornice, string course below parapet has plain
coping. Datestone in parapet carved on plaque on corbelled out refuge. The line
from Holsworthy to Bude was built by the LSWR and opened 1898 and closed in 1966.
Concrete blocks were used in housing in the 1860s, but this structure may be the
earliest example of their use in bridge construction. Similar viaduct on the same
line at Holsworthy.
