Great Central girder bridge crossing Northgates, Leicester

Great Central girder bridge crossing Northgates, Leicester

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L1765. Seen from the corner of Pingle Street in May 1980, this is the bowstring girder underbridge that carried the Last Main Line over Northgates, Leicester. Looking at the bridge's semaphore signal gantry, it is clear that the signal arms have already been removed.
