L1983. Looking south at the three-arched skewed Bridge 407 in May 1977. The two running lines ran beneath the central arch of the bridge, which was designed so that extra lines could be laid through the side arches if required. The trackbed is still very clear, yet the cutting sides have a fair covering of foliage. The bridge, built to carry the Lutterworth Road (now the A426) over the railway, appears to still be good condition although some of the brickwork is missing over the left-hand arch. In 2003 the bridge still stands, complete with a new northern parapet.
