Saltash is a modern town with historic roots dating back to the 12th century. Situated on the west bank of the River Tamar, Saltash acts as a gateway between Cornwall and Devon. Brunel's Royal Albert Bridge was built across the Tamar in 1859 and the impressive structure dominates the area. Local walks and heritage trails can be downloaded from www.saltash.gov.uk.
