L3054. Bridge no. 402, a girder structure built by Topham, Jones & Railton to carry the Great Central's Last Main Line across the Cosby to Whetstone road (Cambridge Road) in Leicestershire. The bridge's lattice work iron parapet was a typical feature of the London Extension. Regrettably, the northern abutment is all that remains of the bridge today.
