Granite Bridge on the Mountsorrel Railway

Granite Bridge on the Mountsorrel Railway

Go back to the records from the Rothley map.
L2120. A view along an abandoned trackbed, looking towards the bridge that was built to carry Wood Lane over the Mountsorrel Railway in Leicestershire. Constructed and operated privately by the Mountsorrel quarries, this was a branch line that left the Great Central at Swithland Sidings. Unsurprisingly, the bridge is made of roughly dressed granite. This is a small, rather picturesque structure, far different from the imposing brick and girder bridges which typified the London Extension.
