Leicester Viaduct - Bridge 373?

Leicester Viaduct - Bridge 373?

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L2049. Both the northern and southern approaches to Leicester Central Station were carried on bridges, and even the station itself sat on top of the viaduct that spanned the city. The southern approach crossed two plate girder spans over Bath Lane and Welles Street, and this February 1977 photo shows the former, looking north. Today in 2003, the bridge no longer stands.
