New Bridge at Hayle
The pipes on the causeway will be laid in the riverbed to allow the tides to flow under the causeway.
First pipe sections laid. The larger upright pipes are to protect the bases of two of the four pillars which will support the main bridge span.
Piles are erected on the east side of the causeway to carry bird netting
Another view of the flume pipe sections, with St Elwyn's Church behind.
This quay in Copperhouse Pool was once known as
Merchant Curnow's Quay
, but for simplicity I'll mostly refer to it as the south shore, or side.
