Looe Bridge
Looe Bridge
East and West Looe existed as early as the 12th century, divided by the Looe River. In 1411 the towns were connected by a wooden estuary bridge, the earliest in Cornwall. This burned down and was replaced by the first stone bridge in 1436, which featured a chapel dedicated to St. Anne at its centre. Celia Fiennes recorded in 1698 that the bridge had 14 arches. This was replaced in 1853 by the current seven-arched bridge about a hundred yards further upstream, so this picture was taken from about the position of the old bridge.
