Foot Bridge for Torbay Council through Gingko Projects.


Freshwest were appointed to design and build a new footbridge to cross the water meadows in the grounds of the historical Cockington Court in Torquay next to the old gatehouse. The commission was part of an overall project which aims to promote more sustainable access to Cockington Court and enhance the site’s legibility. The use of British oak within the bridge design ensures that it is in keeping with its immediate natural and lush surroundings. The sinuous bend of the bridge echoes the natural curves and movement of the stream that flows beneath it.
