Trekelland Bridge over the River Inny carries traffic using the road between Liskeard and Launceston in Cornwall. It is thought to date from around 1500.
The main structure is of dressed granite and the pointed arch soffits are four-centred Elizabethan style. The parapets, with refuges over the cutwaters (the projections into the river at the bridge piers), are constructed of random Delabole slate. They are probably repairs to the original structure.
The bridge has two main arches of 5.8m and a floodwater arch of 2.7m span. The carriageway is 3m wide.
