Saltash is known as the “gateway to Cornwall” and lies in the South East of Cornwall, next to the River Tamar. It is one of the largest towns in Cornwall. The name Saltash means ash tree by the salt mill.
On 2nd May 1859, HRH Prince Albert opened the Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Royal Albert Bridge which takes the railway line across the River Tamar. Alongside it lies the Tamar Bridge which became the first suspension bridge to be widened whilst remaining open to traffic.
The railway station is situated close to the town centre. There is a regular train service provided with some High Speed services travelling to and from London.
