Full description

Department of Environment, 1984, South Hams, 7 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV336648.

Tavy Bridge. Railway bridge over the estuary of the River Tavy. Partly situated in West Devon district. Circa 1889-90. Eight spans of iron bowstring braced girders on 7 pairs of iron- clad circular piers with pedimental caps. The iron bridge spans the deep-water channel. Either end, over the tidal mud is bridged with a stone viaduct of segmental arches, 7 at the south-east end and 2 at the north-west end. The Plymouth Devonport South-Western Junction Railway Company was formed in 1883 and this line from Lydford to Devonport was opened in 1890. The line was operated by the LSWR which had a small capital holding in the company. The LSWR eventually took over in 1922.
