Pictures of Wadebridge
in the county of Cornwall
A delightful bridge that has 17 arches and is 320ft long spans the River Camel. It is one of the finest medieval bridges in England and was built around 1485. It was widened in 1849 and the old day's that record Wadebridges long history as a port, are recalled by quays that exist beneath the bridge to either side of the Camel. Legend tells us that packs of wool may have been sunk into the river bed to make solid foundations for the piers.
Nearby is a deserted railway line to Padstow, and it is from the path that runs alongside the line that you get the best view of the Camel and it's estuary. In fine weather, you can take an enjoyable walk along this path which skirts Dennis Hill, where there is a monument of Queen Victoria.
Wadebridge hosts The Royal Cornwall Show in June each year. This annual event is attended by people from all over Devon and Cornwall. Of interest nearby, is the Cornish Motor Museum which displays Traction Engines and Vintage Cars from many decades.
This enchanting place, is close to Padstow and Rock which are now renowed as excellent surfing resorts. Padstow is the home of the famous chef Rick Stein whose restaurant here specialises in fresh fish and seafood. Wadebridge is a super resort in it's own right and an ideal base from which to tour this glorious part of Cornwall.
