Bridge 402 near Cosby in Leicestershire

Bridge 402 near Cosby in Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Whetstone map.
L1992. Bridge 402 was built to carry the Great Central over the Cosby to Whetstone road (Cambridge Road) near Cosby in Leicestershire. It was one of the many steel girder structures with a criss-crossed lattice parapet built on the London Extension, and still survived in its original condition when this photograph was taken in May 1977. The photograph is looking at the bridge's west side and there is little evidence that the railway has actually closed. Today in 2003, only the northern abutment still stands.
