Site of Bridge 397 in Whetstone, Leicestershire

Site of Bridge 397 in Whetstone, Leicestershire

Go back to the records from the Whetstone map.
L3184. Bridge 397 was a steel girder structure with the lattice parapets that were such a familiar site on the London Extension. It spanned the Enderby Road in Whetstone and was a well-known sight to people travelling between Enderby and Blaby. After the railway's closure, road improvements and the creation of a small industrial park saw the demolition of the bridge and the northern embankment leading to Bridge 396. This July 2002 view shows the cut back remains of Bridge 397's southern abutment on the Enderby Road.
