Disused railway bridge, Wheal Emma, 1979
The photo was taken from the trackbed of the abandoned standard gauge mineral railway, looking south. In 1979 the embankment to the bridge, (marked FB on the OS Explorer map), is partially collapsed. The railway ran high above the Devon bank of the Tamar, from the former Devon Great Consols mine, south to Morwell Down where the mineral ores were winched down the inclined plane to Morwellham quay.
