Tavistock Part 3

Originally published on Photoblog by Gethin Thomas AUGUST. 06, 2021

Strictly speaking this is just one dominating structure in Tavistock that I did a whole set on because it fascinated me. I did drop clues in part 1 and part 2.

As you walk up the hill from the town square this monumental structure starts to appear between the buildings and trees.

Dated 1889 it comprises eight arches, five spanning fifty feet and three spanning thirty feet. The pier between the third and fourth arches from the western end includes a narrow archway. It closed in 1968 and is now a listed structure carrying a walkway. There is some discussion of reopening the railway.
