Interesting structure but it’s within the college’s grounds and could only be viewed from a distance by standing on the road bridge.

We went to admire the Mathematical Bridge over the River Cam from the bridge adjacent. I suppose you would get a different view from a punt or the walk way that is near by.
The bridge was originally assembled without screws or boosts, so the legend goes. Worth a look at when exploring Cambridge.

One of the recognizable bridges in Cambridge - the story is that it was built without bolts and only with physics and geometry, but I think it was renovated with screws now.

Better in theory to visit the bridge than to actually witness it. I wasn't going to pay to see it up close, to see a bridge that has been re-built three times and is now held up with nails, unlike the original structure.

This bridge is my favourite, especially due to the story behind. Well done students from the past! Such a pity they needed screws to reconstruct this bridge...

this bridge is both pretty and an excellent example of engineering. Apparently 6 of these bridges would form a circle if joined together!

One of the famous bridges over the River Cam in Cambridge Supposedly made without nuts, bolts or screws, although today there are nuts! When first made it was held together by wooden pegs, so maybe that is where the story came from. Not built by Sir Isaac Newton, as he was already dead by 20 years when it was built, so that myth also doesn't hold up. One thing that is true is that there are no curved pieces of wood and all the timbers are straight but arranged so as to give the gentle curve seen today. Take a punt and get up close and personal with it underneath!

We saw this bridge from the nearby road bridge that crosses the Cam. It doesn't look particularly interesting, historical or special.

Although Queens' College is currently closed to visitors, you're still able to get a good look at the Mathematical bridge where the college borders the public road or punting on the River Cam. So this bridge has been reconstructed from the original, which was first designed in 1748 by William Etheridge and is fully functional.

Saw thing bridge while part of a walking tour of Cambridge. The guide told us quite a fanciful story about Isaac Newton and the lack of nuts and bolts in the original bridge. Although if you have some engineering or physics knowledge, it just looks like a truss bridge. All those straight lines and tangents remind me of trigonometry problems though.
