Bridge 399 near Whetstone in Leicestershire

Bridge 399 near Whetstone in Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Whetstone map.
L1998. Bridge 399 was a large three-arch underbridge that carried the London Extension over Whetstone Brook. The brook ran under the central arch, while the two side arches had footpaths running beneath them. The embankment here was very wide and the bridge was built to suit, giving the arches a tunnel-like feel. Two foot bridges were built on either side of Bridge 399 and these were numbered 399a and 399b. This photograph was taken from a rebuilt Bridge 399b in May 1977 and shows the west side of Bridge 399. Bridges 399 and 399b still stand in 2003, but 399a has long since been demolished.
