Bridge 369 - Devonshire Road, Leicester

Bridge 369 - Devonshire Road, Leicester

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L2067. Bridge 369, like many other bridges on the London Extension, was a plate girder span with criss-crossed lattice parapets on either side. It was built to a height of 14' 5' above road level and crossed a gap of 39' 11'. However, the skewed nature of the bridge meant that the total length was 45' 5'. This photograph was taken from the Great Central's abandoned trackbed, looking south in May 1977. On the other side of the bridge stands a rather forlorn looking signal gantry - as seen in L2066.
