This painted softwood bridge is an example of modern timber construction, with hidden steel plates supporting joints in the timber and allowing a greater span to be achieved.
The bridge links the Mains Bed & Breakfast cottages with the estate’s gardens. Viewed from the bank, the combination of the semi-circular structure and supporting spokes provide a dramatic frame for the burn. The pink tone echoes the ashlar stone walls of a neighbouring building and the red blazed paths that characterise the estate.
The green oak decking is grooved to provide an anti-slip surface, level with the connecting paths, creating step-free access across the bridge.
