L2008. Bridge 393 was built to carry the Great Central over the Grand Union Canal near Blaby 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 was taken looking to the east. Note the reflection in the canal's still water. Today in 2003, the bridge's girder deck has been removed but the abutments are still standing in a good condition.
