Moorswater village, Cornwall

Moorswater village is now basically just a westward extension of the Mid Cornwall town of Liskeard.

Liskeard grew to prominence via the wool trade with Tavistock in West Devon.

Moorswater railway station was the centre of operations for the Liskeard and Caradon Railway and the Liskeard and Looe Railway.

The Liskeard and Caradon Railway was opened on 28 November 1844 from quarries on the moors north of Liskeard to Moorswater where goods were transferred to the Liskeard and Looe Union Canal. At Looe they could then be transferred again to sea-going vessels for transport further around the coast. The canal was superseded by a railway on 27 December 1860 and passengers were carried on the Moorswater to Looe section from 11 September 1879.The two railways made an end-on junction here. It was the site of the lines' engine shed, also a china clay works which is now used as a cement terminal.

For more information see the account of Moorswater Railway Station on Wikipedia.
