Bridge over a tributary to the River Tamar. Probably mid-late C19. Slatestone
rubble with granite dressings. Two 4-centred arches with granite dressings and three
triangular cutwaters with refuges. String course above the arches. The bridge
slopes up from each end to the central cutwater. The parapet walls are about 1½
metres high, with chamfered granite coping, varying in height with the slope of the
ground ; splayed back at each end to a square terminal pier with pyramidal cap. The
bridge is about 4 metres wide and about 40 metres long.
Cotehele Bridge was built by an Earl of Mount Edgcumbe, in C15 style; it gives a
roadway between Cotehele Quay and Morden Mill, now known as Cotehele Mill (q.v.).
