St Germans
St Germans (Cornish: Lannaled) is a village in east Cornwall. It stands on the River Tiddy, just upstream of where that river joins the River Lynher; the water way from St Germans to the Hamoaze is also known as St Germans River.
It takes its name from the St. German's Priory, generally associated with St Germanus, although the church may have been associated initially with a local saint, who was gradually replaced by the 14th century. This magnificent and ancient Norman church is adjacent to the Port Eliot estate of the present Earl of St Germans.
B3249 Road
The B3249 is a short B-road in southeast Cornwall. it runs 3 miles from Tideford to Polbathic, via St Germans
It starts at a T Junction on the A38 in Tideford, a few miles west of Saltash. It heads south and then southeast and descends into St Germans. The road passes the church (the seat of the Bishops of Cornwall before the diocese was merged with Exeter in 1050) and bends to the right to go under the Cornish Main Line by St Germans station. Here the road bends sharply right at a triangular junction (the road to the left goes to the village quay on the St Germans River) to double back westwards. It enters Polbathic and crosses a stream before ending there on the A374.
Interestingly the B3249 is part of the shortest route from Plymouth to Torpoint avoiding the Torpoint Ferry.
