Pevsner Parambulation - St Budeaux

Ref: C3530381

St Budeaux parish lies opposite to the borough of Saltash, linked originally by ferries and now by railway and road bridges. The Tamar Bridge will provide a starting point for this guided historical walk, during which we will visit the nearby church of St Budeaux, which sits on top of a hill with post war housing developments and the remains of an Elizabethan mansion nearby. During this walk we will try to make sense of this multi-period landscape, which was totally transformed by the building of the Tamar Bridge. (Meeting Place Tamar Bridge Office).
