Architectural Photography of Deptford Bridge by Moxon Architects

The blog of Simon Kennedy, Architectural Photographer based in London. 

Moxon Architect’s Greenwich Reach Swing Bridge completes the riverside Thames Path, crossing the mouth of Deptford Creek in South East London. Planned as part of the Greenwich Reach development, the structure provides a crucial piece of public infrastructure within a sensitive part of Central London. The scheme consists of a 44m span cable stayed footbridge with a single mast and a central cable plane. A short 8m back-span contains a counterweight and provides an attachment point for pairs of backstay cables, which support the tip of the mast laterally and longitudinally. The structure is supported on a slewing ring bearing underneath the mast with electric motors to drive the bridge clear of the navigation channel.
