Bell's Bridge and the Armadillo, Glasgow

The upper of two foot-bridges which cross the River Clyde at Pacific Quay, Bell's Bridge was built in 1988 originally as a temporary crossing to connect the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre with the Glasgow Garden Festival of the same year. It took its name from its sponsor, Bell's Whisky, and comprises three spans, two partially supported by a white needle-shaped pylon. The bridge can rotate on its south pier to allow larger vessels to reach the upper Clyde.
