1825 | Hayle Causeway opens

"A work most beneficial to the whole country was com- pleted at Hayle in the year 1825, under the authority of an  Act of Parliament. The passage across the main estuary  was frequently dangerous and always interrupted by the  tide ; several of the branches could not be passed at high  water, and lives were not unfrequently lost. A causeway
provided with arches and parapets, now affords a safe line of communication from Penzance and the Western Peninsula, to the eastward ; and all the roads are raised above the utmost range of the tide. "

"The parochial history of Cornwall, founded on the manuscript histories of Mr. Hals and Mr. Tonkin; with additions and various appendices"
