Mathematical Bridge

History

The Wooden Bridge, or the so-called ‘Mathematical Bridge’ is the popular footbridge just near Queen’s College. It was designed by William Etheridge, and built by James Essex in 1749. It has been rebuilt on two occasions in 1866 and in 1905, but has kept it’s unique design.

Special Design

The name ‘Mathematical Bridge’ came from it’s sophisticated engineering style. Although the bridge appears to be an arch, it is entirely made of straight timbers, which is a Chinese technique called tangential radial trussing.
