Wadebridge  Cornwall


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Wadebridge like this:

Wadebridge, small seaport and market town with ry. sta., Egloshayle and St Breock pars., Cornwall, on river Camel, 7 miles NW. of Bodmin; P.O., T.O., 2 Banks. Market-day, Friday. A bridge of 17 arches, erected in 1485 and widened in more recent times, crosses the river. There is a small dock. The principal trade is in cattle, for which markets are held on the second Tuesday of every month. A relic of antiquity, consisting of 9 stones called "The Sisters," is in the vicinity.
