Merchant's Bridge

Built in 1996 by Whitby Bird and Partners, a company with lots of experience in bridge building, this elegant sweeping arch is actually wider in the middle than at the ends because it was expected that pedestrians would want to stop in the middle to enjoy the view.

The bridge won a number of awards including: the Civic Trust Award 1998, Design Council Millennium Product 1998 and the British Construction Industry Award 1996 highly commended. It is made of white painted steel.
