Bridge 390 near Glen Parva in Leicestershire

Bridge 390 near Glen Parva in Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Whetstone map.
L2011. Bridge 390 was a brick built three-arch overbridge that crossed the London Extension near the village of Glen Parva and close to the Grand Union Canal. Many of these bridges were built over the railway as they allowed for the possible widening of the line, should it ever have been required. This north facing view was taken in March 1977 and shows Bridge 390 still standing strong, although its parapet walls have been demolished. The rest of the structure still appears to be in good condition, as does the trackbed which is still very clean and clear. On the right-hand side are the remains of the woodland known as Aylestone Hole.
