Respryn Bridge

Respryn Bridge is a medieval bridge across the River Fowey in Lanhydrock Parish. It has five arches. The bridge replaced an earlier thirteenth century one with the central arch dating back to the fifteenth century. The other arches are round and the two on the west are relatively modern. There are low parapets with granite coping and triangular stone cutwaters with refuges. King Charles was said to have ridden over the bridge in 1644 during the Civil War. The bridge is north along the B3268 from Lostwithiel and west of Lanydrock House towards Cutmadoc.
