L2783. Built by Logan & Hemingway as part of Contract No.1 (Annesley to Leake), this is the Great Central girder bridge that carried the London Extension across the Great Northern Railway at Basford, Nottingham. The structure's lattice work iron parapet is a distinctive feature of the Last Main Line.
