Leicester Viaduct - Bridge 374

Leicester Viaduct - Bridge 374

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L2065. This point marked the end (or the beginning for southbound trains) of the brick and girder viaduct that had carried the London Extension over the city of Leicester. From the start point near Western Boulevard, the viaduct's total length was around 5700 feet, or more than 1' miles. Most of this viaduct has now been demolished, although several sections do still survive. This May 1977 view shows the end of the viaduct, looking south towards the city. At this time, the viaduct was still all in one piece.
