Fan Bridge which was unveiled in 2014 is a three metre wide cantilevered moving structure crossing the eastern end of Paddington basin. Designed by Knight Architects it rises in four parts by hydraulic jacks forming a fan shape above the water and which are currently operated Wednesdays and Fridays at 12 noon.

Paddington's relatively new Fan Bridge at Merchant Square each Wednesday and Friday at noon and Saturdays at 2 PM. Designed by bridge specialists Knight Architects, the fan spans about 20 yards across the head of the basin. The architects used the principal of the traditional Japanese hand fan to design the rising and closing of the five steel beams, which arrived by barge, sailing serenely up the canal. Despite the slowness with which everything happens, kids seem to enjoy it. But don't go on a cold day--the winds off the canal are brutal.

Otherwise known as The Fan Bridge, it’s an interesting structure that is worth a detour to check out

Sadly I didn’t see the bridge either open or being opened when I visited, but judging by videos online it’s an extraordinary sight. Even when it’s down, the bridge is interesting to see, with what look like stegosaurus spines at one end. Take a look and expect to be amazed.

Our most recent stay in London saw us again being accommodated in a hotel located in Paddington. Consequently, we were able to enjoy several relaxing after-dinner strolls around the Paddington area. One of those walks took us around the Paddington Basin. There was a major construction project underway adjacent to the basin which detracted somewhat from the ambiance of the area. However during this walk, we did manage to see the Fan Bridge for the first time. While we were there, the bridge was in its upright position which provided us with the opportunity to see its distinct fan shape. As we had never seen a footbridge like this one before, we were happy that we had come across it during our stroll. The Fan Bridge in its upright position, would certainly would make a great photographic subject if the light was good. Unfortunately for us, it was early evening and the light was not good. Well worth a look if you happen to be in the area!
