Architectural photography of Somers Town Bridge.

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

This elegant canal bridge in Somers Town, Kings Cross, London, was completed by London- and Crathie-based architects Moxon. The bridge is intended for the use of cyclists and pedestrians to cross into the Kings Cross Canal as part of a landmark development project. The bridge is extremely thin, and incredibly elegant structurally, achieving a span of 38m, with a minimum depth of just 400mm at each end.
