Yorkshire Bridges: 17. Link Bridge, Eyre Lane, Sheffield

I'll finish off this set of posts regarding bridges in Sheffield with a little thing, a link bridge which spans across Eyre Lane.

This links two sections of Sheffield Hallam University, the Arundel Building and Charles Street Building.

I don't know who the structural engineer was, but the architect is Bond Bryan Associates, collaborating with Corin Mellor of David Mellor Design, who are much better known as a designer of cutlery than of bridges. The Mellors once had a workshop on the site.

The bridge combines three materials: glass for the side elevations, weathering steel for the roof and floor, and stainless steel for the decorative ribs.

There's not a great deal more to say: it's short, and it's sweet.
