Moorswater, a village in the E of Cornwall, 4 miles W of Liskeard. It stands among orchards, in a wooded valley, at a nexus of canal and railway, communicating between the Caradon copper mines and the Cheesewring granite quarries on the one hand and the Port of Looe on the other, and it has paper mills. The valley is spanned by a very long railway viaduct 150 feet high, supported on tapering piers of stone, and extending from hill to hill.
