L2244. Plate girder underbridge at West Bridge, Leicester, built by Henry Lovatt & Co. of Wolverhampton as part of Contract No.2 (Leake to Aylestone). Looking at this imposing structure, and the buildings that survived demolition only to continue to live in its shadow, it is easy to appreciate the powers of radical change wielded by the Victorian railway companies.
