Thames Footbridge Taplow
by Knight Architects

Lance McNulty

Located in a picturesque Buckinghamshire village, Taplow Bridge is one of the newest crossings over the River Thames.

The distinctive 40-metre arch bridge links pedestrians from a new residential development to Ray Mill Island, allowing both riverbanks to be open to all.

Knight Architects worked with engineering partner COWI to develop a solution that suited the natural beauty of the site and contributed to a strong sense of placemaking.

Careful detailing ensures the approach defines the quality and appearance needed to protect and enhance the sensitive character of the site.
