Millers Crossing
England

Millers Crossing, a suburb footbridge over the River Exe in Exeter. A lovely bridge to take photographs of.

Millers Crossing, a foot and cycle bridge crossing of the River Exe opened in November 2002. It is situated over Blackaller Weir, by the Mill on the Exe and links Bonhay Road with the island separating the Exe from the Exwick Flood Channel. The main bridge is 54 meters long and has two large 6 metre mill wheels to anchor the cabling supporting the bridge. As far back as I remember there has always been a requirement for a bridge over this part of the river so it was gladly received by the public when it was built. It gives the residents in St Thomas and Exwick a more direct root into the city centre.

It is an attractive design that technically is a cable stayed bridge - the design of the concrete wheels echoes the many fulling and grist mills that lined the Exe in former times. Designed by Don Sharland and Clive Ryall, bridge engineers of Devon County Council, it was built by Land and Marine Structures Ltd under the main contractor of South West Highways. It was named after a public competition run by the Express and Echo.
