Saturday. Saltash was an an-
cient corporate town, possessing charters from Richard
III. and subsequent monarchs, and was at one time a
place of great importance, mainly on account of its
being one of the passes into Cornwall. It was repre-
sented in Parliament by 2 members until 1832, and
suffered great decline until the railway era, when it
rapidly revived in prosperity and underwent consider-
able extension. It is a port of some consequence, and
carries on malting, fishing, and an active coasting
trade ; grapes are largely cultivated in and around the
town. The Albert Bridge, a celebrated railway bridge,
2240 ft. long and 240 in height, carries the railway
across the estuary of the Tamar at a height of 100
ft. above water level.
