Tavy Bridge
Tavy Bridge
Although this is very similar to SX4561 : Crossing the Tavy and SX4561 : Railway Bridge over the River Tavy, it was taken from lower down nearer the edge of the estuary.

The listed building description at LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) make it clear that the central section, across the deep-water channel, is composed of eight arches of iron carried on 7 pairs of iron-clad circular piers, while at each end there are stone viaducts, made up of two arches at the far end and seven at this end. The line, originally the Plymouth Devonport South-Western Junction Railway to Lydford, opened in 1890; as the Tamar Valley Line, it now only goes as far as Gunnislake.
