Restormel Bridge crosses the River Fowey in Cornwall. It was built when the Lostwithiel Bypass was constructed in around 1960. The bridge is a triple span concrete arch structure, with the central arch being considerably wider than the two flanking arches. Whilst the underlying structure is concrete, the facings have been covered in what looks like reconstituted stone cladding - so in fashion in the 1960s! There are also semi-circular cutwaters between the arches, rising to provide somewhat unnecessary pedestrian refuges considering the width of the pavements. The road is a standard S2 carriageway across, and whilst the bridge is straight the road curves, accommodated within the pavement space.
