Wadebridge

Wadebridge is a market town and tourist centre, situated on the estuary of the River Camel in north Cornwall with a population of over 6000. It has one of the finest medieval bridges in Britain, dating fro around 1490. The building of the Wadebridge bypass in the early nineties took much of the traffic away from the town centre and allowed the main shopping street to be pedestrianised. Now home to the Royal Cornwall Agricultural Show, the town also hosts an annual folk festival. A number of beaches are within easy reach and the Camel estuary provides opportunities for a variety of water sports. Two miles to the north. lies the Walmsley Bird Sanctuary. The map below shows the features of the town, its streets and houses as they were in the mid twentieth century. Click on a selected area of the map below to see an enlargement.
