Bridge 321 - Loughborough, Leicestershire

Bridge 321 - Loughborough, Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Loughborough North map.
L2191. Situated north of Loughborough, this is the footbridge (no. 321) that was built by the Great Central Railway to carry a path across an arm of the River Soar. Interestingly, original plans have this marked as a wooden bridge, so this plate girder structure may well be a replacement. Note the telegraph pole that rises above the embankment: a relic of the London Extension that remains in place some eight years after the Line's closure.
