Would you trust a bridge made entirely of paper?.

Lakes Culture has teamed up with artist Steve Messam to create a bridge made entirely of paper using no glue, bolts or fixings.

According to the MailOnline, ‘PaperBridge is a temporary piece of artwork located over a beck at the top of the Grisedale Valley, under the shadow of Helvellyn, Cumbria.’


Making up part of Lakes Culture’s “Lakes Ignite 2015” programme, the bridge took 3 years to develop and uses authentic architectural principles as seen in the dry stone walls and original packhorse bridges that populate the Lake District.

Made from 22,000 sheets of paper, the bright red bridge weighs 4.5 tonnes, is 5 metres long, and open to curious (or brave) members of the public until May 18.

The only question now is – are you daring enough to cross it?
