Bridge 356 - Rothley, Leicestershire

Bridge 356 - Rothley, Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Rothley map.
L2104. Some of the bridges built during the construction of the Last Main Line were actually a short distance from the railway itself. Usually, this was either to allow access to land which the new railway had isolated, or to replace existing bridges that had been demolished to make way for the line. This one is bridge 356, a girder bridge with a span of 25 feet that crossed Rothley Brook, built to the west of the railway. The bridge's design is clearly derived from its cousins on the main line, and includes the familiar lattice work iron parapets.
