WADEBRIDGE BRADFORD QUAY, Wadebridge
9/213 Quay wall 40 metres to north west
of north east end of Wadebridge
Remains of quay walls. Circa C18 on earlier site and with earlier origins.
Slatestone rubble walls largely constructed in vertical courses with horizontal
slatestone piers forming wall to Bradford quay on north east bank of River Camel.
The warehouses on the quay have been largely replaced with C20 galvanised buildings
although part of the North Cornwall Railway station, erected in 1895 exists.
The River Camel was navigable for vessels up to 60 tons from Padstow to Wadebridge
and there was a dock capable of holding 20 barges. Bradford quay and the Town Quay
on the opposite bank of the river were used for unloading coal, slates, lime, bricks,
timber and later cement. Sea sand carried up river from Padstow to Wadebridge was
then carried inland after 1834 when the first steam railway in Cornwall was built
between Wadebridge and Bodmin.
