Polygon Type B - Building footprint
Details (Known As) Angle Vale Bridge [Laminated Timber Arch]
Registered Name Old Bridge
Significance This bridge is significant for its unusual method of construction and its rarity. It is believed to be one of the last surviving timber laminated bridges in Australia and is one of the largest and oldest timber bridges in South Australia. This form of bridge construction fell out of favour when the use of iron became common. Although laminated timber arches were common in most states (about 20 were built in South Australia), it was only in South Australia that important developments were made to overcome their lack of durability. The bridge is therefore important for its contribution to the development of bridge engineering in Australia (HSA, 1/2000).

While due care has been taken to ensure that the SA Heritage Places Database accurately reflects the South Australian Heritage Register and listings of Local Heritage Places in Development Plans, the State of South Australia does not accept liability for the use of the SA Heritage Database for any purpose. Users should consult the Department for Environment and Water - Heritage South Australia to confirm the listing of State Heritage Places and the relevant Development Plan for Local Heritage Places/Contributory Items.

In the majority of cases, the maps of State Heritage Places on this web site show the footprints of the most significant structures on a registered Place. However, sometimes they simply indicate the complete area of land comprising the Place. Work is proceeding to further refine the mapping of such places. It is also important to note that development control is not limited to the registered structures but extends to their setting and structures nearby (what is termed ‘development affecting’ a State Heritage Place). Hence it is vital that exact details of the listed place and implications for any proposed development be discussed with Heritage South Australia staff, as they cannot be deduced solely from the information on this web site. The inclusion of a place in the SA Heritage Register gives no right of public access. Permission to visit properties must be sought from the owners. The accuracy of the mapping of State Heritage Places is not guaranteed. Please contact Heritage SA ( https://www.environment.sa.gov.au/topics/heritage/sa-heritage-register) if you believe there is an error.
