Paper Bridge

It used to be my neighbourhoud, not Cumbria, but Lancashire.
Though, the  Lake Distric was a quite familiar destination for me and my friends.
So, I got quite emotional  when I read about this paper bridge….


It is a site-specific landscape installation made of 22,000 sheets of red paper by environmental artist Steve Messam.


It was built without glue, bolts or any other fixings and instead relies on authentic architectural principles used in the dry-stone walls and the original packhorse bridges that dot the Lake District to hold it up.


The temporary structure,will be open to the public for 10 days from 8 May and all the paper used will then be returned to the paper mill for recycling.
