L2461. Built by Logan & Hemingway as part of Contract No.1 (Annesley to Leake), this is the girder underbridge that carried the London Extension across the Linby to Hucknall road. According to S. W. A. Newton's original notes, one of the buildings visible beyond is a Midland Railway's signal box: the Great Central crossed the Midland just north of this position. Note the bridge's lattice work iron parapet: a typical feature of the Last Main Line.
