Footbridge over the Tavistock Canal
The Tavistock Canal was opened in 1817 and although narrow, was important to the local mining industry until the arrival of the railway in 1859. The canal linked Tavistock with the Tamar River port of Morwellham. Since 1933 it has been used to supply water to a Hydro-electric power station near Morwellham.
