  1. The theories are are pure myth! The Mathematical Bridge at Queens College Cambridge dates from 1749 – Newton died in 1727! It certainly has nails and fixings, otherwise the whole thing would collapse into the Cam!

    What makes it mathematical is the fact that it appears to be curved but consists entirely of perfectly straight timbers.
