‘Wishbone’ Footbridge, Godney, Somerset
Private commission, completed Nov 2000
A footbridge was required to span the Sheppy river, in the grounds of ‘The Roundhouse’ in Lower Godney, Somerset, a contemporary green oak house, designed by Wilf Burton, built by West Wind (www.westwindoak.com)
The bridge design needed to reflect and compliment the style of the house, and the atmosphere of the Somerset levels. It is made from green oak and galvanised steel.
