Sausmarez Bridge

Route de Carteret, GY5

See the route

The bridge over the Route de Carteret near Cobo is one of the only ones in Guernsey. The local landmark has been in place for more than a hundred years.

The bridge is built from local stone and joins two pieces of land originally owned by Lord de Saumarez. He constructed the bridge because he did not want to walk from Saumarez Park, where he lived, to the sea without leaving his land. The bridge goes over the main road so he was able to walk from one end of the property to the other.
