I had never been to Cornwall before. It was a very noticeable structure. It must have taken such a long time to build but it is a beautiful bridge in its design

Interesting design features for those interested in Mr Brunells bridges. For those of you that don't know, Isambard Kindom Brunell is also responsible for the Clifton Suspension bridge and Templemeads Railway station and the SS Great Britain which can all be found in Bristol.

The rail gateway to Cornwall. A sign to a Cornish man they are on the way home. Well built by Brunel part of Cornish history.

Yes, it's just a bridge, but anything built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel is worth looking at. This is a particularly magnificent example of his work, wonderfully built with only the basic technology available.

I don,t believe anyone can consider a bridge built in the last 200 years a tourist attraction. If travelling near Saltash take a glance, but please don,t cause an accident
