Yorkshire Bridges: 11. University of York footbridges

I'll finish this short series of posts on the bridges of the University of York with a sampling of some of the other footbridges to be found at the University's Heslington Campus.

But first, I found a couple more photographs of the weathering steel footbridge, which make for an interesting comparison with my own photographs. Both of these are courtesy of the University's image library. They show the bridge as it was originally designed and built, not as hidden behind trees as it now is, and with a much more open and attractive parapet. It was clearly a genuine work of art, and deserving of wider recognition. Although it's still an attractive bridge, it's clearly not what it used to be.

Here are a few more of my own photographs of bridges at the University:
