A Punt on the River Cam 12

The famous 'Mathematical Bridge' at Queens' College, Cambridge. It is made up entirely of straight beams. A famous myth about the bridge is that it was built without the use of nuts and bolts. Quite untrue, but it's construction is fascinating enough.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
